Peacekeeping is a foundational component of the United Nations but its historical trajectory has been marked by great debate over its form and purpose. In the 21st century, peacekeeping once again finds itself in a period of change, both geopolitically and in its practice. CIPS researchers, Caroline Dunton, Marion Laurence, and Gino Vlavonou, have recently edited a special issue of the Journal of Intervention and Statebuilding, where participants in a 2021 CIPS workshop have published research on the future of peacekeeping. Contributors to this special issue include: Roland Paris, John Karlsrud, Katelyn Cassin, Benjamin Zyla, Tom Buitelaar, Marie-Joelle Zahar, and Laurence Deschamps-Laporte. At this CIPS event, the editors and contributors will discuss their articles.
The event will be in English.
