Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


This conclusion identifies and reviews three key developments in UN peace operations in the Asia. First, Asia has hosted some of the most complex new developments in peace operations, especially Cambodia where many of the post-Cold War concepts in peacekeeping and peacebuilding were tested. Second, Asia has seen the emergence of China and Japan as major new actors in peace operations. Third, a debate over regional peace operations has emerged, which shows shifting attitudes towards norms of sovereignty and intervention. But a more favourable political climate in Asia for humanitarian interventions, which is the emerging frontier for UN peace operations, is unlikely in the near future, given the continuing strength of state sovereignty in the region.
