The Global Peacebuilding Association of Japan and the Kyoto Peacebuilding Center will hold a book review entitled “UN Security council Reform – Assessment of Its Legitimacy, Effectiveness and Representativeness” on September 8, 2021, 20:00 -21:30 Japan Time.
The extensive literature on UN peace operations has provided practitioners and academics with a breadth of explanations and answers to the fundamental question of whether or not UN peacekeeping works. In her book, Power in Peacekeeping, Lise Morjé Howard presents an empirically grounded theory of how peacekeepers actually exercise power. She offers a new typology that explains how peacekeeping differs from other forms of intervention and identifies three essentials of power in peacekeeping: persuasion, inducement, and coercion.
Ambassador Tadamichi Yamamoto, former Special Representative of the Secretary-General; Ilidio Ximenes da Cost, Timorese Ambassador of Timor-Leste to Japan; Yasuhiro Ueki, Professor of Sophia University and Former UN Spokesperson; Takaaki Mizuno, Lecturer at Tokyo University and Hosei University; Keiichi Tanabe, Associate Professor, Department of International Studies, School of Humanities and Culture, Tokai University; Mayumi Yamada, Assistant Professor, College of International Relations, Ritsumeikan University; Naoko Kumagai, Vice President of GPAJ and Associate Professor of Aoyama Gakuin University join the debate on the transition process.
