Peacekeeping, Peacemaking, & World Order

A Study of the Post-Cold War UN System

The book represents an attempt of a deep and comprehensive analysis of the UN’s role in peacekeeping and peacemaking in the post-Cold War era. The author, Alexander Mirza, a management consultant with over 25 years’ experience including advising heads of state and international organizations, based on a skillful analytical and historical approach, considers the concept of the new U.N. multilateralism, its evolution, challenges, and failures. It is generally recognized that as a result of the Cold War, the collective security mechanism practically did not work. After years of doubts about the UN’ ability to carry out peacekeeping operations, today there is an urgent need to study the international legal aspects of the regulation of peacekeeping operations, as the main way of implementing UN peacekeeping activities aimed at ensuring international peace and security. The main thesis that Alexander Mirza offers to readers is that thanks to cooperation and respect for the positions of partners, it is possible to implement projects of any scale, while a lack of mutual understanding leads to the loosening of even the most stable structures, which was demonstrated by the UN after the start of the Cold War. The author sees a way out in peacekeeping through the new UN multilateralism and resolving the debate between humanitarian intervention and national sovereignty.
