Abstract
The peacekeeping operations in Bosnia - Implementation Force (IFOR) and the Stabilization Force (SFOR), or collectively (IFORISFOR) - exemplify the new opportunities, and prerequisites, for multinational peacekeeping in the post-Cold War era. These operations have shown that regional organizations and the UN can complement rather than complicate each other's work. The operations also demonstrate that with the end of the Cold War, Russia and the United States have been able to cooperate in a new fashion, widening the potential scope for peacekeeping in the future. The key prerequisite for success in Bosnia (and for the future) is the willingness of the peacekeeping partners to compromise on their near-term interests and principles, and focus on the long-term benefits of peace and cooperation
