Summary
Despite increased interest in peace operations during recent years, their study remains a semantic morass, because there is no generally accepted classification of such operations for analysts and decisionmakers. Even fundamental concepts are frequently misunderstood or are interpreted in widely different ways. This confusion increases the danger that peace operations will become murky and ill-defined, as is often alleged by critics. The typology presented in this report defines five types of peace operations -- observation, interposition, transition, security for humanitarian aid, and peace enforcement -- from an operational perspective, drawing on the past five decades of experience, and offers vivid illustrations from the Congo to Croatia. It should help decisionmakers to understand the limitations of peace operations, to select the optimal type of operation for a given situation, and to evaluate success and failure
