The UN has resolved disputes, inhibited escalation of conflict and spurred peace in some situations, but certain inherent problems continue to attract criticism. The failure of the UN to foster long-term peace in settings with complex conflict-dynamics is an important limitation, suggests Anette Sonnback in her article for E-International Relations. Focusing on peace operations, nuclear disarmament and humanitarian intervention, some of the main areas through which the UN maintains international peace and security, she concludes that the UN’s real success lies in its role as a normative power, guiding the global understanding of acceptable behavior.
