As the United Nations passes its 50th anniversary, it has undergone a great change in its approach toward peacekeeping. Originally a stopgap measure to preserve a cease-fire, peacekeeping in the aftermath of the Cold War has become a means to implement a political solution between antagonists. In this study, Steven R. Ratner offers a comprehensive framework for scholars, policymakers, and all those seeking to understand this new peacekeeping. Ratner sees the UN as an administrator, mediator, and guarantor of political settlement -- roles that can conflict when peace accords unravel. In a historical review beginning with the League of Nations, Ratner reveals many striking precedents before the present day. In the central case study, Ratner applies his thesis to the Cambodia mission of 1991-93, the most ambitious UN operation completed.
