9780815726302: The Fog of Peace: A Memoir of International Peacekeeping in the 21st Century
Review:

"Jean-Marie Guehenno is a scholar-diplomat of immense integrity, intelligence, judgment, and charm. He won international respect during his eight-year stewardship of UN peacekeeping--no mean feat given those years coincided precisely with George W. Bush's presidency. What shines through this thoughtful and detailed account is the admirable way in which Guehenno maintained his own moral compass amid a swirl of competing pragmatic and political imperatives, never succumbing to the weary cynicism that so often afflicts international public servants. We could have no better guide to navigating the "fog of peace.""--Gareth Evans, Foreign Minister of Australia, 1988-96, and President of the International Crisis Group, 2000-09"

From the Publisher:

After over a decade of international engagement in Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Sudan, peace is far from secured in those three countries. A skeptical observer is left wondering if anything has been accomplished by costly interventions in faraway lands, especially as more immediate threats - most acutely in the form of terrorist acts orchestrated by individuals or small groups - loom in the streets of New York, London, Paris, and other major cities throughout the world. At the same time, there is a growing sense of outrage as the conflict in Syria enters its third year and more than one hundred thousand lives have been lost. Intervention is unpromising but abstention seems callous. In The Fog of Peace , Jean-Marie Guehenno reflects on some of the most difficult questions facing international interventions today. Guehenno draws on his experience as the head of the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations from 2000-2008, a period that included intense negotiations and spiraling crises in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Sudan. He returned to the United Nations in 2012 to act as Kofi Annan's deputy in negotiations designed to find a - so far elusive - sustainable solution to the war in Syria. From his experience in leading negotiating teams and overseeing the decisions that placed UN blue helmets into some of the world's most dangerous environments, Guehenno draws a number of important lessons for those who remain committed to international engagement in civil wars in far off lands, as well as for those who would prefer retrenchment.

Descripción BROOKINGS INSTITUTION, United States, 2015. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. No small number of books laud and record the heroic actions of those at war. But the peacekeepers? Who tells their stories? At the beginning of the 1990s, the world exited the cold war and entered an era of great promise for peace and security. Guided by an invigorated United Nations, the international community set out to end conflicts that had flared into vicious civil wars and to unconditionally champion human rights and hold abusers responsible. The stage seemed set for greatness. Today that optimism is shattered. The failure of international engagement in conflict areas ranging from Afghanistan to Congo and Lebanon to Kosovo has turned believers into skeptics. The Fog of Peace is a firsthand reckoning by Jean-Marie Guehenno, the man who led UN peacekeeping efforts for eight years and has been at the center of all the major crises since the beginning of the 21st century. Guehenno grapples with the distance between the international community s promise to protect and the reality that our noble aspirations may be beyond our grasp. The author illustrates with personal, concrete examples-from the crises in Afghanistan, Iraq, Congo, Sudan, Darfur, Kosovo, Ivory Coast, Georgia, Lebanon, Haiti, and Syria-the need to accept imperfect outcomes and compromises. He argues that nothing is more damaging than excessive ambition followed by precipitous retrenchment. We can indeed save many thousands of lives, but we need to calibrate our ambitions and stay the course. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780815726302
