Peacekeeping Study Group, Session 4, March 27, 2014.
Presenter: Charles F. Dunbar (Lecturer in International Relations at Boston University, Former US Ambassador to Qatar and Yemen, and Former UN Secretary-General's Special Representative of MINURSO in Western Sahara)
The study group will question the policy of the United States on peacekeeping since the 1990's. The participants will analyze the consequences of the "Somalia Syndrome" and of the events in Rwanda and Bosnia on the US contribution to UN peacekeeping. The position of the different US administrations will be studied to assess the continuity or the changes in the policy regarding "assertive multilateralism". The group will also study the collaboration between the UN and NATO and will compare the US and UN approaches to peace operations.
