Sendes vanligvis innen 7-15 dager
This book provides a comprehensive survey of the current levels of peace-keeping forces at global, regional, sub-regional and nation-state levels. The authors offer a census of peace-keeping capacity in the first decade of the twenty-first century and chart plans to develop this capacity in order to provide an assessment of global capability for implementing commitment to the human security agenda that has recently emerged and been endorsed by the UN Security Council and member states. While concerned to measure capacity and activity, the book also has a normative dimension that identifies discourses about peace-keeping, peacebuilding and conflict prevention in the context of the national, regional and global locations in which they are taking place in order to provide both a qualitative and quantitative assessment of the likelihood of the emergence of a new model of peace-keeping based on cosmopolitan peace-keeping theory and practice. It presents a unique account and analysis of the state of peace-keeping in the opening decades of the twenty-first century and a projection of its potential evolution and contribution to the freedom from fear agenda within the millennium development goals. Peacekeeping in the 21st Century will be of great interest to all students of peace-keeping, peace and conflict studies, international security and international relations in general.
