Summary During the cold war, the United Nations (UN) developed the mission termed peacekeeping to help manage conflict. These peace operations helped save millions of lives, prevented conflicts from escalating, and provided an environment for the political settlement of disputes despite the superpower conflict. In the aftermath of the cold war, the UN found itself freer to act than at any time in its history, and the demands placed on the organization quickly outstripped its ability to cope. This study examines the role of regional organizations in the conduct of peacekeeping. It asks if the international community's singular focus on the UN as the vehicle for peacekeeping prevented the regional organizations from contributing more to international security. Furthermore, if the regional organizations could contribute significantly to international peace, then what role should the Department of Defense (DOD) play in supporting these efforts?
