The level of success of the twenty United Nations peacekeeping operations conducted since the end of World War II has varied considerably. Some missions were successful, while others were failures, and yet others have perhaps become part of the problem. The author uses three case studies to determine the optimum climate for a successful peacekeeping operation the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus, the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon and the United Nations Emergency Force II. While these operations were all conducted within a few hundred kilometers of each other, the effectiveness of each was strikingly different. The lessons learned from them apply to peacekeeping operations now under consideration in New York and to operations that will be planned in the future. The author identifies four critical factors in the formula for success the agreement and cooperation of the belligerence, the drafting of the mandate, freedom of movement and the financial arrangements.
