Warriors in Peacekeeping: Points of Tension in Complex Cultural Encounters
Warriors in Peacekeeping: Points of Tension in Complex Cultural Encounters makes a contribution to broadening and deepening understanding of the complex range of relations in modern peacekeeping operations, including interactions between national contingents and their respective chains of command and their relations with other contingents in the field, as well as with regional authorities, scores of NGOs, and the media, the latter representing numerous countries of the world. Its findings help to identify “points of tension” in peacekeeping operations in Bosnia-Herzegovina, where, for the first time, contingents from more than 35 countries had to cooperate, each of which had their own, quite different, constitutional, legal, cultural, social, and economic preconditions. This volume provides both descriptive and analytical insights based upon these experiences that are applicable to contemporary international peacekeeping operations all over the world.
