Abstract : Peace Operations are complex, highly subjective and difficult to 'win' missions. The way that Peace Operations are addressed by nations or multinational bodies is paramount to their success, but often leads to a failure to achieve desired goals. Nations must clearly define their goals prior to intervention and not loose track of assigned objectives. What often sidetracks otherwise noble intervention is conflicting or ambiguous goals, leading to inept half measures. Critical analysis of a proposed Peace Operation is required prior to commitment. This paper attempts to provide some constructive critical analysis which would benefit organizations contemplating Peace Operations.
