Peacekeeping today is becoming ever more complex, reaching deep into conflict affected societies aiming to facilitate social, economic and political transformative processes in order to establish sustainable peace. However, most quantitative studies evaluate mission effectiveness only in terms of conflict abatement, using the number of battle death as indicator. This leaves a substantial assessment gap. Dr. Brosig’s study, “What Peacekeeping Leaves Behind”, seeks to address this gap by exploring the effects of multi-dimensional peacekeeping by using a number of different governance and security indicators.
