Cooperating for Peace: The Global Agenda for the 1990's and Beyond

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 1993 - Law - 224 pages
How can the United Nations meet the huge expectations placed upon it as peace maker, peace keeper and peace enforcer? What is the role of the UN and the major powers in the new world order? Why was the high-risk peace-keeping operation in Cambodia ultimately successful, but not in the former Yugoslavia? Just what should the UN be doing in Somalia, and any future such case? What went right in Namibia but wrong in Angola? With input from experienced Australian diplomats, analysts and academics, Australian Foreign Minister Gareth Evans has written an analysis of the workings of the UN as peace keeper, and explains the challenges and problems it faces. Case studies of UN activities provide an insight behind the headlines and the dramas played out regularly on television.
