Conflicted peacekeeping? Severine Autesserre, professor of political science at Columbia University
An old adage has it that councils of war never fight, meaning that decision-makers often get caught up in deliberations rather than making and implementing decisions. That may not be so bad in the case of war, but what about peace? Do the councils of peace or UN peacekeeping operations deliver what they set out to do? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Severine Autesserre, a professor of political science at Barnard College, Columbia University, and a scholar of peacekeeping.
