As the past two decades of war in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Darfur and the Congo have revealed, war in the twenty-first century looks nothing like the traditional state-to-state conflicts of World Wars I and II which defined the previous century. Resolving today’s conflicts - typically based on complex ethnic, religious, economic and political dynamics - requires far more than mere military strength and technology. The military officer of today must simultaneously be a warrior and diplomat, combatant and humanitarian worker, soldier and peacekeeper. But how can today’s militaries prepare their leaders for such multifaceted roles? Warriors or Peacekeepers seeks to provide answers to this question, comparing and contrasting research on the successes and failures of military cultural education and training programs in seven different countries on three continents (U.S., Canada, Argentina Norway, Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands). This anthology consists of three main sections. The first addresses the theoretical issues of developing the warrior-peacekeeper: what constitutes cultural competence in the officer profession and the pedagogical challenges associated with developing such competence. The second compares teaching practices from various military educational institutions and provides insight into such issues as: how language training can build cultural awareness, helping officers navigate the ethical and moral challenges of dealing with gender in radically different cultures and the best didactic models to develop reflective skills in military leaders. The third section examines the structural and organizational conditions which historically have aided or impeded educational and organizational change in the military. This book will appeal to military academic communities, educational institutions, scholars in security studies, peacekeeping and conflict studies; and to decision-makers in governments and administration.

This study deals with sociological and sociopsychological aspects of UN Peacekeeping missions focusing on the Austrian experience. The study is broad and descriptive covering a spectrum that ranges from the soldier's motivation to join UN-troops to the social and psychological problems encountered during service. The main purpose is to give a broad overview of work-related experiences during the tour of duty. The emphasis is on the Austrian soldier's life and his experiences as a peacekeeper. The study focuses primarily on an Austrian battalion (AUSBATT/UNDOF) deployed to the Golan Heights. Their mission can be considered a traditional UN Peacekeeping operation. In addition, some data on the Austrian IFOR contingent to Bosnia is included.

This paper is organized into sections examining a particular dimension of the Canadian deployment in the former Yugoslavia. The first section addresses the political dimensions to the deployment and the decision to commit the Canadian Forces to the international missions known as UNPROFOR, IFOR and SFOR. It discusses how participation in a peace operation is compatible with Canada's national security agenda & popular with the Canadian public, and how participation brings credit to Canada internationally and allows Canada to have a voice in international organizations. Section 3 examines how SFOR was organized, how training & previous experience prepared Canadians for the mission, and the attitudes that Canadian peacekeepers had towards the mission. Section 4 assesses the relationships of Canadians with other national contingents and how NATO experience affects Canada's ability to work with other militaries in SFOR. Section 5 examines how Canadians organize and maintain relationships with the local population. The final two sections examine relationships that Canadian military personnel have with other organizations, particularly international & voluntary relief agencies and the media.

The Duke of Wellington is reputed to have claimed, "Great countries don't fight small wars." However, great countries don't become great, and stay great, without maintaining presence, engagement, and the ability to protect its interests both at home and abroad in times of peace, crisis, and war. For the United States, the mission of presence, engagement, and defense abroad has largely been assigned to the armed forces. It is the demonstrated and proven strategic reach of the U.S. military in supporting diplomatic engagement, protecting global economic presence, and fighting and winning our nation's wars that maintains the superpower status of the United States today. But, as developing nations attempt to define their role in the new balance of world power, and as ethnic, religious, and tribal conflicts continue to flare, the United States, as a world leader, must now, more than ever, remain engaged in regional "small wars" and peace operations to promote democratic stability, enhance economic development, protect U.S. interests, and prevent major regional conflict.

For thousands of years, the roles of peacekeepers, warrior, and veteran were extremely important for First Nations people. Yet the history books do not provide Canadians with an understanding of this rich and vital piece of our culture. Today, veterans are revered at every community powwow and Remembrance Day ceremony. The eagle staff and flags are carried in with honour by veterans and peacekeepers from the local community. Every gathering introduces these great men and women and their achievements. We recognize that these soldiers overcame great challenges and made inspiring sacrifices to help this nation. They fought to make sure we keep our freedoms that we enjoy today. Ningwakwe Learning Press would like to share just a glimpse of this truly remarkable aspect of First Nations' history.

The First World War was a cataclysm that disrupted countless lives. As a modern, total war, it brought men and women into active battle zones across Europe as well as in parts of Africa and Asia. Women could support the military effort and the nations men in uniform as nurses, female military auxiliaries, ambulance drivers, farm workers, and factory laborers as well as in many other occupations, something evident in many of these documents. Despite the diversity of gender and of war separately, gender roles in war are very consistent across all known human societies. So to help overcome soldiers reluctance to fight, cultures develop gender roles that equate manliness with being tough and being able to stay tough under fire. Across cultures and through time, this gender division that selects men to fight and women to serve in support roles has influenced gender in a profound way. These gender roles have helped shape the war system. In turn, the pervasiveness of war has influenced gender in profound ways, particularly in the way we enforce gender norms in child rearing. Nonetheless, gender does not decide whether or not a person is an outsider of war. In other terms, women have always involved in war. We can distinguish diverse roles such as camp followers, nurses in combat, soldiers, and finally as housewives waiting for the men back home. Some of these roles have serves as a support to war and militarism. But gender is not merely a social construct; it also carries messages of power. The association of peacekeeping and conflict resolution with women is pernicious because it opens the door for a denigration of these strategies. Not surprisingly, there is resistance against the feminization of militaries, a sentiment that women and peacekeeping undermine combat capabilities, that soldiers cannot be both warriors and peacekeepers. Handbook on Gender and War presents an inclusive overview of the relationship between gender and war, revealing the conduct of war, its impact, consequences and disagreement to it. Contributing complicated theoretical insights and pragmatic research from the ancient World War to contemporary conflicts around the world, this Handbook will focus on how war affects both men and women, particularly due to prescribed gender roles enforced by the cultural, societal, economic and political systems under which we live. This book focuses on the studies from a wide variety of disciplines and will be of importance to scholars and researchers in the fields of gender and sexuality, international relations, sociology, peace and conflict studies and cultural studies.
