This paper will focus on peacekeeping operations as a form of intervention by the international community over the next 15 years. Like it or not, it may fall to the United Nations and the international community to keep the international system from descending into more generalized armed conflict. This presents an initial overview of recent of peacekeeping and peace operations, areas in which militaries from around the world play a crucial role. It will conclude with recommendations for US policy makers on how to better understand, cooperate, and enhance these tools, making the two worlds of international security less separate, arguing that they are mutually dependent for better managing the transition from warfare and conflict to stability and peace.
