Peacekeeping: are UN missions in trouble?

| 0 Comentarios

The United Nations has more than 100,000 peacekeepers, serving in sixteen missions on four continents. Their goal is to protect civilians, maintain peace and security. But their operations have caused controversy, including allegations of sexual abuse. Demand for peacekeepers in conflict zones continues to rise and the UN is struggling to keep up. 12 months after world leaders pledged to strengthen and modernize peacekeeping operations, the UK is hosting a follow up to see where things stand. Defence ministers from more than 70 countries flew to London to discuss how to improve operations. Presenter: Richelle Carey Guests: Rosa Freedman, Professor of Law & Global Development, University of Reading Mehari Maru, International Consultant on African Union affairs Jack Christofides, Director of Policy, Evaluation & Training at the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
