Produktbeschreibung
This work is driven by the question whether it is
possible for regional organisations and the United
Nations (UN) to maintain the international value of
impartiality in robust peacekeeping operations in
Africa. It assumes that unless the UN manages to
establish a conceptual framework to cooperate with
regional organisations, peacekeepers will abandon
impartial conduct by default. Regional organisations
seem to offer certain advantages in carrying out
regional conflict management tasks, however, one of
the most significantly criticisms of the regional
peacekeeping efforts have been partiality.

The study makes the case for a strong
rationalisation of peacekeeping and preferably a
cross frontier formalisation of peacekeeping
principles and practices. At the same time it
emphasises that the flexibility presently in place,
though not necessarily purposely done, is not
necessarily negative. The study concludes that the
regional organisation needs strengthening in terms
of UN commitment to their successful development.
Therefore, it concludes that a complementary role by
the UN is seen as the way forward for regional as
well as global conflict resolution.
