At the end of the Cold War, when one might have expected a period of peace and stability, we see the
opposite–a noticeable increase in the number of peacekeeping operations. In the five years between 1989 and
1994, the Security Council authorized a total of 20 new operations and an increase from 11,000 to 75,000
peacekeeping troops and civilian personnel.
Peacekeepers conducted in operations including the nations of Angola, Cambodia, El Salvador, Mozambique,
Namibia – and our case study, Yugoslavia. In addition to their mandate to keep the peace their duties included
helping to implement peace agreements, train and reorganize the military and police departments, supervise
elections and assist in building democratic institutions.
