Abstract : Since the end of World War II, the use of military forces to help achieve peace, without resorting to violence, has gained wide acceptance. Most recently, the demise of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War have ushered in a new era of international cooperation and a surge of peacekeeping activity. United Nations peacekeeping operations are rapidly expanding. A stable, prosperous, and peaceful world is the best guarantee of our national security. Traditional ideas of how to achieve international security are being transformed in the face of an emerging new world order. Collective and cooperative security is based on two working premises: National security is virtually impossible without the active cooperation of others; and international institutions and regimes, entered into voluntarily by member states, must serve to manage conflict. Cooperative security emphasizes an international commitment to common values, human rights, peace, security, and stability.
