Abstract : This report discusses the results of the body of work we have completed on issues concerning the effectiveness and cost of U.N. peacekeeping. Specifically, my statement will address four key issues: (1) the U. N.s limitations in conducting peace operations that require the use of force, (2) long-standing peacekeeping missions that are from 6 to nearly 50 years old, (3) the extent to which the United States has provided voluntary support to U.N. sanctioned peace operations, and (4) the U.N.'s efforts to reform the management of peacekeeping operations.
