UN blue helmets have in many cases been an effective multilateral instrument for fostering war-to-peace transitions. But especially in Africa, where the majority of missions are deployed, peace operations suffer from a number of problems, including an underfunded region-wide African security architecture. These shortcomings severely restrict peacekeeping missions from fully realising their peacebuilding potential in Africa.
African states have deployed operations of their own and they now contribute half of all UN peacekeepers. The African Union AU and the UN have developed a strategic partnership that plays out at the political, policy, and operational levels, and reflects the reality that neither will deploy peace operations in Africa without close consultations and some form of cooperation with the other. While the UN peacekeeping model is not found to be well-suited to enforcement, counter-terrorism or trans-national operations, the AU, sub-regional organisations and ad hoc regional coalitions have developed capabilities designed to address these challenges.
One of the key issues facing Antonio Guterres, the UN's newly installed secretary-general, will be to address critical failures in African peacekeeping operations. With this is mind, he will surely be asking himself whether the vast organisation he is now leading needs to chart a different course. A new report by the Geneva-based research group Small Arms Survey has accused the UN's mission in South Sudan Unmiss of lacking neutrality by giving arms to rebels in the town of Bentiu in The report also claims that shortly after this transfer of arms, the rebels went on to carry out a massacre of civilians. The operations of the UN's mission in South Sudan came into sharp focus after embarrassing revelations that its troops failed to protect civilians following clashes between government forces and former rebels in July A damning internal investigation found that its peacekeeping mission in the capital, Juba had failed to achieve one of its core mandates, namely "to protect civilians under threat of physical violence […] with specific protection for women and children". Not far away, foreign aid workers suffered similar sexual violence at their residence.
While UN peacekeeping operations are in most cases confronted with a multitude of intertwined problems, this seems to be even worse in Africa. Operations on African soil have to react more than averagely to inter- as well as intrastate conflicts based upon ethnic tension, to conflicts starting from extreme poverty or the abuse of natural resources, and to situations in which governments are failing to do what governments should do. That analysis is followed by some observations upon the changing nature of peacekeeping operations. This includes the need to react to the specificity of African conflicts - which are often characterised by the combination of poverty, weak public institutions, a small private sector, high illiteracy, a narrow skills base, and limited capabilities for guaranteeing security - and the more general move towards 'peace building', which is in so many ways similar to a 'good governance' approach. The paper concludes by formulating a few lessons.
As the United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres releases his new Peacebuilding and sustaining peace report , Larry Attree argues that the UN must boldly address five big challenges constraining its peace efforts. In recent years, the United Nations UN has engaged in a series of processes to strengthen its ability to perform its core function — to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war. The list is long — yet we live in a profoundly insecure world where national, rather than human security priorities dominate the global narrative.
Paul D. The relationship between the United Nations UN and the African Union AU has at times been characterized by considerable conflict, mistrust, and tension, often hindering the predictability and conduct of effective peace operations. This article analyses the challenges facing UN—AU cooperation on peace and security issues and examines their partnerships in various peace operations.

Peacekeeping operations have had mandates ranging from traditional methods of resolving disputes peacefully under Chapter VI , such as promoting reconciliation, assisting with the implementation of a peace agreement, or performing mediation and good offices, and more forceful action as authorized under Chapter VII which can authorize a range of measures including the use of force under Article 42 of the Charter.

Дворик под названием Апельсиновый сад прославился благодаря двум десяткам апельсиновых деревьев, которые приобрели в городе известность как место рождения английского мармелада. В XVI11 веке некий английский купец приобрел у севильской церкви три десятка бушелей апельсинов и, привезя их в Лондон, обнаружил, что фрукты горькие и несъедобные. Он попытался сделать из апельсиновой кожуры джем, но чтобы можно было взять его в рот, в него пришлось добавить огромное количество сахара. Так появился апельсиновый мармелад. Халохот пробирался между деревьями с пистолетом в руке.
