Chapter Summary

After the end of the Cold War, the successful operations in Namibia led to exaggerated expectations that the United Nations might in future be able to act more on its own in maintaining international peace and security. A remarkable document of this optimistic &t;atmosphere of departure&t; is the report to the Security Council by UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali in 1992, subsequently published as &t;Agenda for Peace&t; Indeed, in his 1995 &t;Supplement&t; to the Agenda Boutros Boutros-Ghali listed &t;enforcement&t; and sanctions as categories of their own, thus abandoning his own chronological model of 1992. According to this model, the international community could intervene in a conflict, - before a crisis escalates into (armed) conflict - to terminate the fighting during a conflict (peace-making), - to secure a truce or an armistice after the conflict (peacekeeping), and - to consolidate an armistice into a lasting peace (post-conflict peace-building).
