Abstract:

The present report is the product of a series of seminars held during the past five years in nine countries around the world and attended by a wide range of highly experienced civilian and military peacekeepers and academics from some 230 organizations and 50 countries. The aim of the project has been to bring to bear, in an informal and collegial setting, the collective knowledge and views of participants on the challenges of peacekeeping and peace support as the world enters the 21st century. Part way through the seminar series, the Report of the Panel on United Nations Peace Operations the Brahimi Report was presented by the Secretary-General to the General Assembly and the Security Council. The thrust and substance of that report contributed significantly to subsequent seminars in the Challenge Project. The present study, Challenges of Peace Operations Into the 21st Century , is intended as an independent contribution to the continuing debate on peace operations reflecting different national and international perceptions, complementing the analyses and recommendations contained in the Brahimi Report.
