Walking the Tightrope: Do UN Peacekeeping Operations Actually Contribute to Durable Peace?

Front Cover
Rozenberg Publishers, Jan 1, 2006 - Political Science - 411 pages
The media generally tend to focus in particular on the failures of U.N. peacekeeping operations. In Walking the Tightrope, Jair Van Der Lijn draws a different conclusion. He argues once a peace agreement has been signed, the efforts of the U.N. peacekeeping operations do contribute to durable peace. By analyzing the U.N. peacekeeping operations in Cambodia, Mozambique, Rwanda, and El Salvador in a structured focused comparison, this book shows how U.N. operations do have a contribution to make.
