Description

Though historically the term peacekeeping has essentially been shorthand for UN peacekeeping, recent years have

seen a proliferation of actors and initiatives in a shift to global peacekeeping cooperation. Hikaru Yamashita

explores the motivations behind this development, what forms it is taking, and what it means for the international

community. His comprehensive account of peacekeeping cooperation offers both an original theoretical framework

and rich case studies drawn from Afghanistan, Congo, Macedonia, and Sudan.

Reviews

“This well-written book contains valuable data and analysis on patterns of peacekeeping,

with case studies that illustrate the actual shifts that are taking place.”

—Lisa Schirch, EasternMennonite University
