Cornwallis V:  Analysis for Crisis Response and Societal Reconstruction

The Lester B. Pearson Canadian International Peacekeeping Training Centre
17-20 April 2000

Operations in areas such as Kosovo, Bosnia, and East Timor have drawn increasing attention to the overwhelming need to deal with crisis response and the many aspects of justice as they relate to peace and peacekeeping.  At the same time, these missions have pointed the critical need to deal with rehabilitating all aspects of societies.  If needs such as these are not addressed, then conflict will continue to return and we may never see the positive aspects of change.  A significant discussion of what needs to be done, and who has the capability to conduct the research, is reported in the discussion of the research agenda for the Cornwallis Group.
