If you're interested in issues of security, peace, and conflict, you'll want to check out the new book chapter from Professor Paul D. Williams: "Two Decades of Civilian Protection Mandates for United Nations Peacekeepers." Williams is an Elliott School Professor of International Affairs and the Director of the School's MA Program in Security Policy Studies. His chapter appears in the new book The Individualization of War: Rights, Liability, and Accountability in Contemporary Armed Conflicts edited by Jennifer Welsh, Dapo Akande, and David Rodin. The book introduces the conceptualization of "individualization" and explores it as both a normative claim and an empirical phenomenon, engaging closely with the debate between so-called Revisionists and Traditionalists in Just War Theory. It also examines how the concept can affect international law and the strategies and actions of international actors. For his part, Professor Williams' chapter offers insight into the consequences of "individualization" through an analysis of UN Peacekeeping mandates.
Williams' is an expert in international security and his research focuses on the politics and effectiveness of peace operations, the dynamics of war and peace in Africa, and emerging threats. You can find more of his work on his website and more information on the book at Oxford University Press.
