Shirbrig and the Project of a United Nations Army (Hardcover) (Joachim Koops & Christof Tatschl)
about this item
This book provides a comprehensive analysis of SHIRBRIG's (The Standby High-Readiness Brigade) activities, impact and limitations and places it in a wider historical and political context.
The volume not only assesses the brigade's operational and conceptual contributions to UN Peacekeeping and African Capacity-Building, but also provides an analysis of the reasons and political manoeuvrings behind SHIRBRIG's closure.
