Resource description

In this book, Paul Higate and Marsha Henry develop critical perspectives on UN and NATO peacekeeping, arguing that these forms of international intervention are framed by the exercise of power. Their analysis of peacekeeping, based on fieldwork conducted in Haiti, Liberia and Kosovo, suggests that peacekeeping reconfigures former conflict zones in ways that shape perceptions of security. This reconfiguration of space is enacted by peacekeeping personnel who "perform" security through their daily professional and personal practices, sometimes with unanticipated effects. "Insecure Spaces"' interdisciplinary analysis sheds great light on the contradictory mix of security and insecurity that peace operations create.
