Role of UN in peacekeeping
United Nations has an organization called UN Security Council that is responsible for peacekeeping. Five members of this team are permanent members while ten are chosen every 2 years. Peacemaking was introduces at the end of cold war and has undergone immense changes. It keeps evolving to meet the political demands as well.
Whenever a problem arises, the UN tries to resolve it peacefully. in order to accomplish this, UN can:-
- Call for more people and resources.
- Reinforce their decisions.
- Orders for sanctions which may include an arms embargo, trade and finance restrictions.
- The main motive to have peacekeeping is help countries torn by conflict.
- Peacemakers were never allowed to fight. They were supposed to enact in case of ceasefire.
- In order to have peacekeeping, the council had a common pattern. This included drafting guidelines for a specific operation but exercised little actual direction over the operation.
Even though UN may be trying its best for peacekeeping, individual citizens are the most important key element peacekeeping.
Peace can be brought everywhere as long as we want it to stay.
