Report, World Peace Foundation
Belfer Center Programs or Projects: Intrastate Conflict Program
The report examines the UN’s capacity for peacekeeping, peace enforcement, and peace building. It does so in light of the of the findings of the Panel on United Nations Peace Operations, chaired by then Under Secretary-General Lahkdar Brahimi, and of the post-Sept. 11 actions in Afghanistan. Gisselquist offers a fresh commentary on the UN’s successes and failures in peace making over time and contemporaneously, and draws a series of conclusions from the UN’s many peace ventures. The report also discusses how best to finance the UN’s peace responsibilities.
