Making War and Building Peace analyzes the effectiveness of United Nations peacekeeping missions in building peace after civil war. It utilizes statistical analysis of all civil wars since 1945 to compare the outcomes of peace processes, including UN peacekeeping missions to those without any UN involvement. It also uses in-depth case studies to explain the mechanisms through which UN peacekeeping works.Michael Doyle and Nicholas Sambanis argue that each mission must be designed to fit its conflict strategically. Where, as is often the case, the parties remain hostile and extensive destruction has occurred, UN missions become effective by transforming a conflict multidimensionally. These missions support--even create--new players who are committed to the peace, build institutions for governance, and monitor and police the parties' implementation of peace settlements. UN missions are most effective in the first few years after the end of a war. In the longer term, economic development has the greatest impact in reducing the risk of rekindled war. Therefore, the authors propose an expansion in the UN's role in launching development projects after civil war, in cooperation with other multilateral institutions.They also find that the UN is not good at intervening in an ongoing war. If the conflict is controlled by spoilers or if the parties are not yet ready to make peace, the UN cannot play an effective enforcement role. But it can offer its technical expertise in multidimensional peacekeeping operations that follow enforcement missions, those undertaken by states or regional organizations such as NATO that can wield power with relative force.
