U.S. Engagement in International Peacekeeping: From Aspiration to Implementation
United Nations peacekeeping missions perform a vital role in 17 hot spots around the globe, from Sudan to Haiti to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Peacekeepers monitor elections, disarm former combatants, and prevent the resurgence of violence, promoting international stability. These missions allow the United States to promote its national security interests without deploying U.S. troops, and enable burden-sharing among global allies. However, there are still ways that U.S. engagement in the peacekeeping process can be improved.
Please join us for a briefing featuring remarks from peacekeeping experts about "U.S. Engagement in International Peacekeeping: From Aspiration to Implementation," a report of the Partnership for Effective Peacekeeping edited by Citizens for Global Solutions and supported by the Compton Foundation. Special guests include Chic Dambach, Chief of Staff to Rep. John Garamendi, Jolynn Shoemaker, CSIS, Paul Williams, the Elliott School, and Peter Yeo, the Better World Campaign.
Lunch will be provided.
