Ethnic Conflict, Peacekeeping and Peacemaking towards 2000 : Second Generation Peacekeeping
MetadataShow full item record
The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs was recently awarded a major grant by the Ford Foundation to conduct research on the future of UN peacekeeping. This research project will attempt to elaborate new political, military and operational doctrines aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of peacekeeping forces in the fulfilment of their traditional roles. It will also examine the possibility of expanding the concept of peacekeeping to include new functions and capabilities. In short, the project aims to draft a framework for a second generation of multinational peacekeeping operations. To flesh out some of the conceptual ideas developed, the project will also explore possible new forms of peacekeeping in 4 different regional settings: the Sudan, the Gaza Strip, Lebanon and Eastern Europe.
