Abstract : Post-Cold-War calls for improving collective security through conflict prevention, as opposed to post-conflict crisis response, led in 1993 to establishment of the United Nation's first preventive deployment in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The command includes a United States peacekeeping task force under UN operational control. This study explores the successes and failures of the preventive mission, proving that conflict prevention is both possible and cost effective, but also uncovering doctrinal contradictions associated with applying traditional peacekeeping structures and doctrine to a new-era interventionist peace operation. Analysis of the United States' role in conflict prevention indicates that problems with US-UN command and control continue to plague combined missions, undermining international will to intervene for collective security.
