The articles in this volume examine a number of critical issues relating to the interface between development, peace-building and peacekeeping. These include institutional co-ordination, the implementation of development in the field, and the contending philosophies that sometimes underpin military and developmental approaches to human security. Not least, the contributors consider the question of how sustainable development fits within the post-conflict 'space' of UN peace missions. These missions, and increasingly humanitarianism, have tended to focus in the 1990s on short-term emergency aid and military security issues. Important as these are, there is a growing need to think long-term beyond the emergency and consider how to implement developmental strategies that allow war-torn societies to rebuild on a sustainable basis.

Introduction and overview: development and the UN peace mission - a new interface required?
Conceptual issues: peace operations - from short-term to long-term commitment
Operation issues and case studies - Africa focus: the issue of the military - UN demobilization, disarmament and reintegration in Southern Africa
Humanitarian and military co-operation: improving UN developmental co-ordination within peace missions
