Chinese and Indian approaches to United Nations peacekeeping: a theoretical appraisal of contribution patterns and decision-making structures

This paper by Olivia Gippner (2015) proposes to outline various theoretical approaches used to conceptualize peacekeeping operations (PKO) in International Relations Theory, and compare these general approaches with Indian and Chinese participation and practices.

The analysis follows two main trajectories: 1) How is peacekeeping understood in Chinese and Indian conceptions of international relations? 2) How are peacekeeping operations operationalized and carried out?
