From Theory to Practice. Temporary International Presence in Hebron

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This article examines the role of third parties in asymmetric conflicts and international peacekeeping in theory and practice. Various theoretical conceptualisations of peacekeeping are critically discussed and linked to conflict and negotiation theory. It argues that peacekeeping is a broad, transformative and context-dependent notion, highlighted by alterable meanings of impartiality, use of force, timing, consent and mandate. Based on the author's practice of peacekeeping, an empirical analysis of TIPH is made. It concludes that the mission comprises modes of traditional and multi-functional peacekeeping, whilst the mandate is based on a bilateral agreement that primarily focuses on addressing the asymmetry of power between the negotiating parties.
