4:00 PM:  Managing the Dual Faces of Internationalized Civil Conflict

Internationalized civil conflict (e.g., Syria, Yemen) represents the most common and dangerous form of global conflict in the 21st century.  This is a report on the latest results from a project sponsored by the United States Institute of Peace to document and assess the impact of all conflict management efforts (from intervention to sanctions to mediation and more) in international civil conflict from 1946-2010.

 

4:30 PM: Measuring the Compatibility of UN Peacekeeping Missions

Whereas traditional peacekeeping operations during the Cold War period largely carried out cease-fire and related monitoring missions, peace operations are now tasked with a wide range of missions, including such peacebuilding ones as delivering humanitarian assistance, promoting the rule of law, and rebuilding infrastructure.  Part of a bigger project to understand the how different missions intersect with one another, this presentation provides a methodology for calculating compatibility scores across missions and for UN peace operations as a whole, with the underlying assumption that peacekeeping is more effective when it performs related tasks.
