No faculty information available
This course examines the theory, history, contemporary practice, and evaluation of peace operations. The scope of the course includes post-conflict peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and those elements of peace-building integral to organized international support for the implementation of cease-fires and settlements of interstate and intrastate wars. The course reviews the political and operational origins of peace operations; peace operations doctrine and planning; and the elements of complex peace operations, including non-military components such as post-conflict civil administration, judicial institutions, police and security forces, electoral support, human rights investigations, education, and economic reconstruction. A wide range of cases will be examined. The course concludes with an assessment of the prospects for reforming and improving the conduct of UN peace operations.
