Role of U.N. Peacekeepers in Donbas Conflict Resolution Open Access Deposited

This paper argues that third-party peacekeeping can play a vital role in mitigating and resolving the Ukraine-Russian conflict in the Donbas region. Understanding the current situation in the region as well as the intricacies and implications of a U.N. peacekeeping mission is important in assessing a solution to the ongoing conflict. This paper will provide an overview of the Minsk Agreements, signed as a result of prior attempts to halt the conflict, and will discuss which actors and stakeholders could play a prominent role in implementing a peacekeeping mission. It will then go over the details of such a peacekeeping force, including necessary U.N. mandate requirements, troop consistency, and the challenges of deployment on the ground; and highlight the objectives for reducing hostilities. The paper will conclude by addressing which goals are thought to be attainable within the short, medium, and long-term.
