Abstract

The Working Paper No. 23 has been published by the IFGK in cooperation with Nonviolent Peace Force and contains five articles on "Civilian Peacekeeping." This topic has played a relatively minor role in the peace research so far. The contributions were - with the exception of the introduction - written independently of one another and for different target groups. Each of the authors pleads for a global expansion of civilian peacekeeping and its promotion by the United Nations and the nation-states in general. All authors have been temporarily associated with Nonviolent Peace Force (NP) or still are commited to NP. This fact explains that NP plays a major role for the examples chosen.Overview of the contents:
