Abstract and Keywords

This article attempts to analyze the effectiveness of contemporary UN peacekeeping as part of a comprehensive strategy to achieve sustainable peace. It shows that ‘success’ and ‘failure’ are from a subjective judgment from the evaluator. It examines peacekeeping and its interactions with peacemaking, peace enforcement, and post-conflict reconstruction. Furthermore, participation is viewed as the key variable in success, rather than a mere cessation of violence.

Keywords: peacekeeping operations, effectiveness, strategy, sustainable peace, peacemaking, peace enforcement, post-conflict reconstruction, participation, violence, cessation
