Peacekeeping Operations and the Quest for Peace
Paul F. Diehl analyzes the conditions that make for success or failure in peacekeeping operations. He concludes that operations are more successful when all combatants, including third parties, cooperate and the conflict is not a civil war. He further argues that superpower behavior has a minimal role once the operation has begun, but the location of deployment and the neutrality of the peacekeeping troops are significant.
