Analyzing the larger issues thrown up by these case studies, the contributors look at UN peacekeeping from a regular state-participant's point of view and assess the relationship between regional organizations and the United Nations in peacekeeping missions. In addition, they examine organizational problems at UN headquarters in New York and discuss problems of command and control in the field. After exploring the difficulties of peacekeeping in civil wars, the relationship between peacekeeping and peacemaking, and the tensions created in moves toward peace enforcement, the contributors conclude by considering the vexing issues of national sovereignty, national interests, and international interests.
