About the product

The first peace supervision intervention mounted by the United Nations in 1948, found France ready to become involved in a foreign theatre of operations on behalf of the world Organization. This book deals with the French vision of peace-keeping operations as it has evolved with time. It addresses France's attitude towards peace-keeping operations; analyzes their legal aspects; the problems raised by parliamentary control over their finances; and the civilian aspects of field operations. These different perspectives illuminate the dedicated French involvement in United Nations peace-keeping operations.
