Peacemaking, 18 Yale Journal of International Law 415 (1993)

Abstract

Why, we all ask, does the world community permit the carnage in Somalia or in Bosnia to go on and on? Why doesn't the United Nations (or anyone, for that matter) just go in there, knock some heads together and make peace? Not peace-keeping, but real peacemaking. Peace-keeping is fine as a stop-gap measure that suspends the violence and permits peace to be established. However, the U.N. peace-keeping operation in Cyprus has gone on for twenty-eight years, with no end in sight. The desired end-state is not peacekeeping but peace. Why doesn't an organization concerned with world peace make peace?
