This course considers the evolution of international peacekeeping, contemporary operations, and future challenges. It is divided into two parts. The first looks at the history and development of peacekeeping. It shows precisely how peacekeeping operations are put together, managed and directed and highlights many of the key dilemmas that confront contemporary peacekeepers. The second considers a range of contemporary dilemmas such as the use of force, post-conflict reconstruction, civil-military cooperation, and the role of warlords, mercenaries and private companies in contemporary war zones.
After successfully completing this course students should be able to:
* Explain the legal basis and institutional framework for international peacekeeping.
Weekly blog entries, and take home exam.
