Abstract

Abstract The United Nations was created to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war" and one of its main goals is the maintenance of international peace and security. Peacekeeping, although not explicitly provided for in the Charter, has become one of the main tools used by the United Nations to achieve this goal. Over the past three decades, United Nations peacekeeping has become a complex global undertaking. During this time, the conduct of United Nations peacekeeping operations was based on the experience of many thousands of men and women who participated in more than 60 operations launched since 1948. Over the past three decades, the scale of international peacekeeping activities has increased significantly. In particular, it can be argued that the number of so-called "providers" of peacekeeping activities has increased. Today, not only the United Nations (UN) is involved in the processes of peacekeeping, but also a large number of regional organizations and some temporary coalitions of States are involved in this activity. Peacekeeping has changed significantly during this time and continues to change. At the moment, peacekeeping is one of the most important tools of international governance in the field of security at all levels and, above all, at the regional level.
