Essay Topic/quesiton:

(1000 words):  In his 1993 book “International Peacekeeping” (John Hopkins University), scholar Paul Diehl proposed two criteria to measure the success of a peacekeeping operation:

(1) does the peacekeeping operation limit armed conflict?; and

(2) does the peacekeeping operation promote conflict resolution? 

Please select one (1) case study of a contemporary peacekeeping operation and critically discuss whether the peacekeeping operation was effective using Diehl’s two measures of success.


Essay should demonstrate critical examination of a subject or argument. This is done by recapping or summarising the major themes (or points in question), and critically discussing them while giving your opinion.

This means offering your evidence-based opinion on the validity of the selected themes. You’ll need to give an overview of the literature and any major arguments or issues that arose from it. You then need to comment logically and analytically on this material. What do you agree or disagree with? What have other scholars said about the subject? Are there any views 5  that contrast with yours? What evidence are you using to support your assessment? Don’t forget to state your position clearly. 

Essays should not be purely descriptive. It must demonstrate a level of analytical skill. The aim is not simply to regurgitate the facts and the works of other scholars, but rather to critically analyse the issues. 

The essay should have: 

1. An introduction section that provides a brief background to the topic, a clear statement of the aim you wish to achieve (often expressed as a thesis), and an indication of the scope of the essay;

2. A main body of writing with headings, where appropriate, to introduce the presentation in a logical sequence of facts and arguments in support of your aim; and

3. A conclusion which answers the question “so what?” regarding the facts and arguments you have presented, links them clearly with the stated aim of the research, and may contain recommendations if that was part of the aim.  Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions about the essay writing process and subject.

All written work must be submitted in A4 Portrait format typed in Times New Roman or Arial Font, Size 12, with double or 1½- line spacing.
