about this item

The current challenges and potential future of peacekeeping in an increasingly complex world take center stage in this far-reaching collection.

Contributors advance a nuanced picture of post-conflict environments across different areas of the globe while considering possible deployments of peacekeeping, traditional military and UN forces in semi-autonomous complementary roles. Longstanding debate topics such as the need for a standing UN army and the field implementation of global right-to-protect concepts are discussed, as are emerging ideas in civilian protection, atrocity prevention and balancing triage operations with long-term peacebuilding efforts. Other dispatches chronicle key issues and concerns regarding peacekeeping operations in Brazil, China and diverse regions of Africa.

Included in the coverage:

  • Protecting strangers: reflections on a cosmopolitan peacekeeping capacity.
  • Towards a standing UN force for peacekeeping.
  • Challenges posed by intervention brigades and other coercive measures in support of the protection of civilians.
  • Addressing the criminal accountability of peacekeepers.
  • The evolution of China’s role in peacekeeping and atrocity crime prevention.
  • Businesses and investors as stakeholders in atrocity crime prevention.

Multiple viewpoints, a global scope and real-world clarity make Perspectives on Peacekeeping and Atrocity Prevention an invaluable resource toadvance the work of humanitarians, criminologists and students of and professionals in international relations.
