Drawing from a diverse range of military, policing, academic and policymakers’ experiences, this book seeks to provide solutions of how national militaries and police can work together to better support future United Nations peacekeeping operations. It addresses the growing tension between increasing non-combat related responsibilities being placed on land forces and the ability of UN peacekeeping forces to fulfil the demands of government and development tasks in fragile and conflict-affected environments. An original contribution to the debate on UN peacekeeping reforms that includes constructing an enhanced partnership for peacekeeping; building on renewed commitment to share the burden and for regional cooperation; providing peacekeepers with the necessary capabilities to protect civilians; and supporting nations in transition from conflict to stabilisation. This book offers the very latest in informed analysis and decision-making on UN peacekeeping reform.
’An accessible, hands-on guide to the changing strategic and tactical realities within peacekeeping deployments, this fascinating set of essays speaks to actual and potential troop contributors, everything you wanted to know about 21st-century peace operations but were afraid to ask.’ Thomas G. Weiss, The City University of New York, USA ’Do more with less! Peacekeepers around the world are familiar with such instructions. But what are the consequences of such orders for the ability of missions to implement their mandates and for the UN to exercise its duty of care towards its peacekeepers? This volume provides a timely and useful analysis of these important issues.’ Paul D. Williams, George Washington University, USA
