UN Peacekeeping doctrine in a new era
Description: Recent UN peacekeeping experiences have challenged the traditional peacekeeping principles of consent, impartiality and the minimum use of force. The pace and scope of these changes have now reached a tipping point, as several new mandates are fundamentally challenging the continued validity of the UN peacekeeping’s core principles and identity. A new book co-edited by NUPI researchers Cedric de Coning and John Karlsrud and professor Chiyuki Aoi (University of Tokyo) entitled “UN Peacekeeping doctrine in a new era”, analyses the growing gap between these actual practices and existing UN peacekeeping doctrine. This seminar will use the book as a starting point for a discussion on the relevance of UN peacekeeping as an international conflict management instrument in a world characterised by violent extremism, ethnic war and the Trump administration’s shift away from multilateralism.
