Broadening the Base of United Nations Troop- and Police-Contributing Countries
Alex J. Bellamy and Paul D. Williams
Broadening the Base of United Nations Troop- and Police-Contributing Countries, by Alex J. Bellamy and Paul D. Williams, is the first in a series of PPP thematic papers. It identifies current trends, summarizes the main reasons why states contribute to UN missions, examines factors that might inhibit contributions, identifies potential future major contributors, and addresses some of the major challenges facing the UN as it seeks to find more high- quality peacekeepers. The authors also detail the practical steps needed to broaden the base of UN troop- and police-contributing countries.
