Prospects for Peace: UN Peacekeeping Missions

Jane Holl Lute, Assistant
Secretary General of the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping
Operations, discusses the challenges of peacekeeping in Lebanon and
Darfur. What is the UN doing to hold the ceasefire agreement between
Lebanon and Israel? What is the status of the deployment of the new
peacekeeping mission along the Israel-Lebanon border? In Sudan, the
mandate of the current African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS) force ends
on September 30 – the Sudanese government has thus far rejected a
resolution to introduce a UN force to replace AMIS. What are the
prospects for implementing the UN peacekeeping force in Darfur? What do
these two, expansive new missions mean for UN peacekeeping writ large?
