Notes

Abstract: Regional regimes in the developing world have accepted more responsibilities in order to address the security and stability issues that exist within their often-volatile member-states. One of the major ways regional organizations in the developing world have expanded their responsibilities is through the deployment of peacekeeping forces into conflicts within their respected regions. This research analyzes the humanitarian peacekeeping interventions led by regional organizations in the developing world and presents results seeking to shed light on the success of these humanitarian interventions and whether they are the better option versus allowing the conflicts to evolve. Specifically, this study finds that humanitarian peacekeeping interventions by regional organizations must be cohesively undertaken with a salient force that encompasses a clear mandate and demonstrates commitment to the mission in order to achieve success. I employ three measures of regional peacekeeping missions in order to achieve a robust measure of success. The first measure is whether there was a continuation of conflict after the peacekeepers entered the conflict. The second is whether there was a continuation of conflict one year after the peacekeepers left the conflict. The third is whether a peace treaty was signed by the warring factions while the peacekeepers were present in the conflict. Based on three logistic regression models, I find statistically significant support for the positive effects of having a clear mandate for successful peacekeeping missions.
