Synopsis Peace operations, which have grown in number and complexity over the last 20 years, are one of the most notorious activities of the United Nations to the point of being confused with the organization itself. UN post-Cold War interventions (Gambodja, Somalia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda) occurred in volatile and high-risk environments and in violent civil wars. Peace-keeping is the most original element of UN conflict resolution mechanisms, and since its inception, it has been in constant definition and refinement.
