Event Summary
Operations in defense of international peace and security are highly prominent representations of the United Nations in the world, prompting frequent questions about the legitimacy of their presence. Do UN peace and security operations reinforce or undermine the legitimacy of the organization as a whole? This session considers the connections between legitimacy and peace operations in practice, and examines the challenges and opportunities presented by these missions.

The seminar is part of the UNU Legitimacy Series, which provides a platform for critical discussions with academics and public intellectuals about issues of legitimacy as they arise in various aspects of the work of the United Nations.

Chairs:
  • Jean-Marc Coicaud, Director, United Nations University Office in New York.
  • Ian Hurd, Associate Professor at Northwestern University and visiting fellow at the Niehaus Center on Globalization and Governance at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
Speakers:
  • Roland Paris, University Research Chair in International Security and Governance, University of Ottawa
  • Ms. Leanne Smith, Deputy Chief, Peacekeeping Best Practices Section Policy, Evaluation and Training Division
