The Global Governance Institute (GGI) has the pleasure of inviting you to the launch of its new GGI Analysis paper on “Doing Less with More? Assessing the ‘Return’ of Western Troop Contributing Countries to United Nations Peacekeeping”. The report, co-authored by Dr. Alexandra Novosseloff (GGI Senior Fellow in the Peace and Security section) and Dr. John Karlsrud (Senior Research Fellow at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs – NUPI) assesses the effectiveness and challenges of a European and ‘western’ return to UN Peacekeeping in the context of the UN Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA). Discussants of the paper and authors’ presentation are Major-General Jean-Paul Deconinck (Former force Commander of MINUSMA) and Major-General Michael Beary (Former force Commander UNIFIL).

The event will take place on 6th February 2020 from 12.00 – 14.00 (with a light lunch from 12.00 – 12.30) at the premises of the Global Governance Institute – Avenue de Tervueren 96, 1050 Brussels.

The event is free of charge, but the number of participants is limited to 25 so please register here.

 

Abstract of the Report
The deployment of the UN stabilization mission to Mali (MINUSMA) in 2013 has been characterized by a number of researchers as a ‘return’ of Western troop contributors to United Nations (UN) peacekeeping in Africa. The aim of this paper is to look at the reality of that ‘return,’ and whether it has enhanced the effectiveness of UN peacekeeping overall and of the UN mission in Mali in particular.  The deployment of the UN stabilization mission to Mali (MINUSMA) in 2013 has been characterized by a number of researchers as a ‘return’ of Western troop contributors to United Nations (UN) peacekeeping in Africa.
