Abstract : It is increasingly recognized that the end of the Cold War has led to a proliferation of regional and ethnic conflicts all over the world. Notwithstanding various shortcomings, the United Nations peacekeeping missions have played a vital role in bringing many deadly conflicts to an end. It is evident that the United Nations will continue to be called upon to play a major role in the resolution of these intra-state conflicts. The main purpose of this paper is to assess the performance of the United Nations peacekeeping operations since the end of the Cold War.
