Managing Armed Conflicts in the 21st Century

Adekeye Adebajo and Chandra Lekha Sriram, eds. (Routledge, 2001)

 

 

This special volume of International Peacekeeping, was largely written by a diverse group of younger scholars. The work examines the conflicts of the 1990s and suggests new approaches and tools for conflict management in the new millennium. The topics covered by this special issue include the paradoxical similarities between war and peace, the role of natural resources in fueling conflicts, the changing nature of UN peacekeeping, the use of force in peace operations, building peace through transitional authority mandates, truth commissions and the quest for justice, civil-militia relations and the protection of civilians in conflicts, the role and utility of private security firms or ‘mercenaries’, the need for greater burdensharing within the NATO alliance, the rise and fall of UN peacekeeping in Africa, and the travails of keeping peace in nuclear South Asia.
