SEMINAR, MAY 2000, CARLISLE
The Doctrinal Dimension of Peace Keeping and Peace Support
In May 2000 the US Army Peacekeeping Institute (now re-established as Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute) hosted a seminar, the fifth session in the series, in Carlisle, USA on the theme "The Doctrinal Dimension of Peace Keeping and Peace Support".
Within the overall thematic field a range of aspects were discussed; national approaches to Peacekeeping & Peace Support Operations, risks to peacekeepers, disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration, public security and the crucial element of training.
Working groups were organized which assessed a range of sub-issues, from how does one determine success or end state of a UN operation to how can the military element most constructively assist the civilian component in a peacekeeping operation.
