Abstract:

Effectiveness in multinational peace operations has become an important issue for the Army. In addition to traditional peacekeeping to monitor cease-fires and truces, the Army is now involved in activities such as peace enforcement and the reconstruction of failed states. While the Army has well- established procedures for traditional peacekeeping, it clearly has much to analyze and learn about these new types of multinational peace operations. As part of this process, the Strategic Studies Institute and the U.S. Army Peacekeeping Institute sponsored a roundtable at the Army War College in 1993. The roundtable was at the level of military strategy and operations, focusing on the concerns of regional combatant commands and U.S. components multinational forces. This is the report of the roundtable. It is not a verbatim transcript, but an attempt to capture the essence of the debate and identify core issues which emerged.
