Completion Date: Sep 2004
An excerpt from the thesis:
The impact of terrorism on UN peacekeeping missions is one of the most challenging obstacles toward the realization of Charter mandates since the Cold War7. The UN possesses three available means under which peacekeeping operations may be authorized. These are Chapters VI8, VII9, and VIII10 of the UN Charter. The most utilized method of peacekeeping has traditionally been under a Chapter VI mandate. Chapter VIII mandates have displayed promise in several contemporary efforts11, but require a great deal of diplomatic skill in coordination of parties, as well as the efficacy of the regional actors themselves. Chapter VII missions, while enacted more frequently, contain several points of contention yet to be fully explored.
