Peacekeeping, Peacebuilding and Community Security The RUSI Journal

The RUSI Journal

Maintaining and restoring peace and security in fragile states remains a major global challenge. This virtual special issue of the RUSI Journal provides academics and practitioners with the latest research on peacekeeping, peacebuilding and community security. The collection covers a range of issues, from general trends to specific cases.

Can at-risk countries be identified well in advance of an atrocity? What are some of the flaws of recent international peacekeeping missions? Are there new, innovative strategies that practitioners should consider applying in the world’s most conflict-prone countries?  The articles in this issue answer these questions and, in turn, start an important discussion on the effectiveness of national and international responses to conflict prevention.
