O enquadramento das Miss?es de Paz (PKO) nas teorias da guerra e de polícia
Proen?a Júnior, Domício;
Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-73292002000200008
Abstract: the original meaning of what are the peacekeeping operations - pko - no longer exists, that is, if some day it really existed. this article tries to fit the pko in the theories of war and police, based on the comprehension of strength and violence, the use of strength, war, and peace. in conclusion, there are some observations about the utility of those allocations.
The Expansion of UN Peacekeeping Operations and the Case of Lebanon
Albert Padrós López
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 2007,
Abstract: With almost sixty years of experience, the United Nations peacekeeping operations have again been challenged, this time in Lebanon. These missions have evolved following three trends developed after the Cold War: the transformation of “first-generation” ortraditional missions into other broader and more complex ones; the growing impact of the North/South cleavage in them; and progressive regionalisation. However, the reinforced mission in Lebanon (UNIFIL) is an operation with a traditional legacy that has particularities.It is more robust; it is led, exceptionally, by European countries; and it faces numerous challenges. This article examines how, although the above-mentioned trends determine the directives of peacekeeping for the near future, the UNIFIL repeats the need to adopt a classical approach in Lebanon adapted to new realities. The author analyses how, despite not covering some elements on the international security agenda since the September 11th attacks, these operations are reconstituted at the beginning of the 21st century as an indispensableelement in international relations increasingly in need of a social approach.
‘Surrender’, peacekeeping and internal colonialism. A Malaysian instance
Juli Edo,Anthony Williams-Hunt,Robert Knox Dentan
Bijdragen tot de Taal-, Land- en Volkenkunde , 2009,
Abstract: A neglected episode in West Malaysia’s subaltern history illustrates how simplistic Western notions of peace—and consequently, of surrender and resistance—can be. In the case of Semai in the Semai heartland, what seems like submission to external pressures turns out to be an ambiguous and ambivalent way of keeping the peace between Malays and Semai in the guise of adding new tools to traditional Semai internal peacekeeping praxis. Semai “double consciousness” of both their own reality and how Malays conceive of it thus allows them to avoid the imposition of external authority by creating a simulacrum thereof. “Surrender” and resistance overlap.
Intelligence at the United Nations for Peace Operations
Gustavo Díaz
UNISCI Discussion Papers , 2007,
Abstract: Since the end of the Cold War, peacekeeping has assumed a renewed saliency and importance. Intelligence in general and peacekeeping intelligence in particular, has long been highly sensitive subject at the UN. In this sense this piece wishes to contribute to a better understanding of the necessity of timely and adequate intelligence support for political and military decision makers during any international peacekeeping operation. Good intelligence is always important to both soldiers and policy-makers can be crucial in any kind of conflict. The UN intelligence efforts in peacekeeping operations have thus been limited. Some improvements have been made, but the further development of intelligence capabilities raises a number of important issues that point to mayor constraints and possible inherent limits on what the UN can achieve.
Uruguayan participation in UN peace operations: An underestimated international insertion tool
Gonnet,Diego; Hernández,Diego;
Cuadernos del CLAEH , 2008,
Abstract: the paper is a contribution to the public debate on the foundations and effects of uruguay's participation in un peacekeeping operations as an instrument of foreign policy. in the first section we offer a brief description of the origins and historic evolution of un peacekeeping operations. in the second we examine the uruguayan participation in these operations. in the third section, the links between this participation and the country's international insertion strategy are observed. the fourth is devoted to analysing to which the extent is the policy of participation in un peacekeeping operations coherent with the reasons used to justify it. finally, we present the main conclusions of this work.

Fulvio Attinà
Romanian Journal of European Affairs (RJEA) , 2008,
Abstract: In recent years, the multilateral practice of peacekeeping and peace support operations has been growing as legitimate instrument to interrupt violence, strengthen security, and protect against gross human rights violations. Invented by the United Nations, peace operations have passed through a process of change that has given new features to multilateral security. Since the late 1980s, the number of UN-authorized peace operations has been growing. Also regional organisations have engaged themselves in an unprecedented number of peace support operations. Recently, the European Union has entered into the practice of peacekeeping, and put multilateralism at the centre of its presence in the world political system. This paper reviews political science knowledge on peace operations (especially, the legitimacy and efficacy issues), and examines the hypothesis of the appearance of minilateralism as the consequence of the engagement of regional organisations and actors, like the EU, in peace operations. The hypothesis is tested by comparing the data of the peace missions of three European organisations (EU, OSCE, and NATO) with those of the United Nations. The paper conclusion is that the European states are developing a preference for selective engagement (i.e. minilateralism) in peace operations, and the EU is capable of playing both as multilateral and minilateral security provider.
Peacekeeping in Africa: Capabilities and Culpabilities
Ananda Nel
Scientia Militaria : South African Journal of Military Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5787/30-2-183
Abstract: African states increasingly carry the responsibility for the promotion and maintenance of peace and security on the African continent. This book provides a detailed discussion on the efforts made by African states to do so and explores the ways and means to enhance Africa's peacekeeping capacity. An analysis is also made of external efforts to develop and enhance the capacity of African states to undertake peacekeeping operations. The content of this book is based on a two year research project conducted by means of fieldwork in more than 20 countries and interviews with more than 200 policy makers and members of civil society.
Interven??o contra a pirataria nas costas da Somália: Naval peacekeeping?
Oliveira,Gilberto Carvalho de;
Rela??es Internacionais (R:I) , 2011,
Abstract: this article examines the implications of international intervention against piracy off the coast of somalia backed by several security council resolutions since 2008. based on a seminal academic debate generically known as naval peacekeeping, the article argues that the intervention against somali piracy is the empirical realization of an autonomous concept of peacekeeping at sea, disconnected from the concepts usually applied to the land-based un peace operations framework.
Rendering peacekeeping instrumental? The Brazilian approach to United Nations peacekeeping during the Lula da Silva years (2003-2010)
Cavalcante, Fernando;
Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0034-73292010000200008
Abstract: the article analyses how brazilian state actions and policies regarding peace operations during the presidency of lula da silva relate to the country's positions and attitudes towards united nations peacekeeping. it argues that the inconsistencies identified on the brazilian positions reflect the lack of a clear strategic horizon guiding the country's participation in un peacekeeping, which consequentially hinders the country emergence as a great power.
