CONCEPTUAL ISSUES Peace Operations: From Short-Term to Long-Term Commitment STEPHEN JOHN STEDMAN and DONALD ROTHCHILD By developing a strategic approach to the implementation of peace accords in civil war, the United Nations can better the odds for ending a war and fostering development in the long run. Recent attempts at implementation have suffered from recurring difficulties: incomplete, vague and expedient agreements; lack of coordination between mediators and those who have to implement an agreement; lack of co-ordination between implementing agencies; lack of sustained attention by the international community; incomplete fulfilment of agreements by warring parties; and the presence of ‘spoilers’ who seek to destroy any incipient peace.
Does the UN, in fact, have the right strategy in place in attempting to seek synergies between these contending approaches? Two principal conceptual approaches to the developmental peace mission may identified. First, the integrated approach described above: this seeks to combine military security, relief, rehabilitation and development into a multifaceted operation, which attempts remedial measures across a broad range of levels – a kind of ‘shotgun’ approach. Second, a contending method may be postulated: the atomistic approach.
The Role of the International Community In the short term, negotiated settlements to civil wars mean an additional dangerous period of uncertainty and insecurity for the combatants. A key problem for antagonists – and third parties who attempt to oversee implementation – is imperfect information about the goals and character of their opponents. Are they sincere in wanting to make peace, or is their agreement only a tactic to try to win in the settlement what has been denied them on the battlefield?
