Notes

Abstract: This study is about which factors drive nations to contribute to regional peacekeeping operations. Using data from six databases, this study attempts to determine whether national and regional interests, capability of the donor nations’ armed forces and the number of threats to the donor nation matter when a nation decides whether to participate in peacekeeping operations. There is a strong negative trend towards a donor nation intervening with its neighbor and a weak indication that the capability of a nation's military does not determine whether or not it will intervene in a target nation. This study is divided into six sections: the introduction, literature review, theory, hypotheses, analysis and conclusion, which posits that if nations are willing to participate in regional peacekeeping operations, then expectations could be properly set so that a peace building process can begin.
