Comprehensive Strategy for Rebuilding Is Key to Peace Operations

The challenge for the future of peacekeeping is how to balance the heavy footprints of a UN peace operation with the need to empower people, says Jean-Marie Guehenno, Under Secretary-General, UN Peacekeeping Operations. East Timor and Kosovo laid the foundation for the most important lesson in peacekeeping -- having a comprehensive strategy that addresses the rebuilding of society. Guehenno joined Juliette Bennett, director of International Peace Forum; David Malone, president of International Peace Academy; Susan D. Moeller, assistant professor of media and international affairs, University of Maryland; Jay M. Parker, director of international relations and national security studies for the U.S. Military Academy, and moderator Naomi Weinberger, director of Columbia's UN Studies program, in a panel discussion sponsored by the School of International and Public Affairs. The panel discussed lessons learned in previous peace operations, the changing nature of peace operations and their future.
