Abstract

This essay aims to describe and analyse the major shifts in UN peace operations since the days of Ralph Bunche. It begins by describing how peace operations looked then, in Bunche's era. Next, it describes how peace operations look now, identifying both continuities and changes, before analyzing the reasons for these changes. The article then outlines the consequences of these changes for the UN's involvement in world politics and reflects on the shape of UN peace operations tomorrow.

Keywords: UN, peace operations, Ralph Bunche, international institutions
