Review quote

An indispensable source for scholars and policymakers alike, joining up-to-date assessments of the latest peacekeeping missions with thoughtful evaluations of developments in the scholarly literature. Rarely, if ever before, have inside expertise and outside analysis of peacekeeping been so well combined. - Michael Doyle, Columbia University "Combining a rich analysis of developments in peacekeeping with a detailed set of data on UN missions, the Annual Review is a valuable resource for policymakers, practitioners, and scholars alike." - Lakhdar Brahimi, former Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General "An essential resource for understanding peacekeeping's contribution to international security." - Stephen Stedman, Stanford Universityshow more
