Conflict resolution theory has become relevant to the various challenges faced by the United Nations peacekeeping forces as efforts are made to learn from the traumatic and devastating impact of the many civil wars that have erupted in the 1990s. This work analyzes the theory.
For those who are coming fresh to the field of peacekeeping, for those who want to revisit the field for a state-of-the-art review of many current issues in the field, and above all for those who want to know how far the debate on peacekeeping/conflict resolution has progressed, this is an excellent reference book.
