Abstract [sv]
In this essay I discuss and analyze why UN peacekeeping missions fail. I exemplify by analyzing two recent conflicts, the one in Bosnia (1992-1995) and the one i Rwanda (1994). The United Nations has been involved in a great number of peacekeeping missions. After the cold war the UN has deployed many missions into countries were civil are raging. Civil wars have been very difficult for the UN to cope with many missions have ended in retreat and humiliation. In 1922 a civil war broke out in the former yugoslav republic of Bosnia. The UN deployd peacekeeping soldiers to the region. But they could not stop the ethnic cleansing or all the refugees running from their homes. Afterwards it was clear that a great number of UN soldiers were poorly trained and equipped and were unable to carry out their mission. The command structure was also slow and ineffective which contributed to the failure of the mission. An almost identic situation occured i Rwanda. The UN came too late to stop the genocide. Again the UN-soldiers were unable to stop conflict and protect the civilians and the refugees. I find that the UN has not been able to change the organization nore the theory of collective security, on which they base their view of international relations, since the end of the cold war. This and the fact that many peacekeeping missions are poorly defined ande the soldiers are poorly trained ande equipped contribute to the failures of the UN peacekeeping efforts.
