    Chapter 1, Part I: Whither UN Peacekeeping?

    09 May 2017. 

    Addressing the limits of peacekeeping requires a sustained, systematic focus on the ways in which the activities of peacekeepers on the ground can reinforce the search for a political settlement. Blue helmets cannot impose political solutions to complex and deep-seated conflicts, but they can and should underpin and support progress towards solutions.

    Conflict and impasse in South Sudan

    03 May 2017.

    Colombia: what comes next?

    08 February 2017. 

    The revised peace agreement in Colombia, though still controversial, is salutary. But to implement the agreement effectively, the government will have to follow through on its reintegration obligations to former FARC members and re-establish a presence in rural areas that brings security and stability. This will be an arduous process.
