Chapter Summary

The merits and demerits of United Nations peacekeeping are widely debated in various contexts, in the United Nations itself, in the U.S. Congress and in the press, by the likes of Brian Urquhart, Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, Cyrus Vance, Bill Maynes, and John Bolton. The debate on U.N. peacekeeping comes at the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. In this chapter the author shares his Cypriot experience with U.N. peacekeeping, in order to outline briefly the key aspects of the United Nations Operation in Cyprus (UNFICYP) as a case-study of what has been termed classical or traditional U.N. peacekeeping, and, furthermore, to draw some lessons of wider application. During, a seminar on the United Nations at 50 held at Meridian House in Washington D.C., the case of Cyprus and peacekeeping was discussed.

Keywords:United Nations at 50; United Nations Operation in Cyprus (UNFICYP); United Nations peacekeeping
