Join Fanny Badache who will examine the effect of world politics on peacekeeping through the case of the UN mission in Mali from 2013 until today.
Scholars and practitioners debate the future of United Nations peacekeeping, especially in the global context characterised by emerging multipolarity. Existing assessments of peacekeeping operations often end in the early 2010s with the launch of the so-called stabilisation missions. In this talk, Fanny Badache will examine the effect of world politics on peacekeeping through the case of the UN mission in Mali from 2013 until today. She will conceptualise the impact of world politics into two dimensions. First, the material dimension refers to the level of geopolitical competition between major or aspiring major powers. Second, the ideational dimension focuses on the norms and values dominant in the international environment. In sum, I am interested in understanding the degree to which peacekeeping practices mirror shifting power dynamics and normative changes at the macro-level. By doing so, I want to reflect on the future of peacekeeping and the impact of changing world politics on international organisations more broadly.
