For many years, what we now call classic "peace-keeping" stood out as one of the great and imaginative contributions of the United Nations. The scope and process of peace-keeping have evolved over time, as the institution of peace-keeping has developed and as international conditions have changed. The award of the 1988 Nobel Peace Prize to the U.N. Peace-Keeping Forces reflects the magnitude and increasing success of the United Nations ongoing contributions.
