    China’s increased engagement in UN peacekeeping operations is a positive development, says Bernardo Mariani, Head of Saferworld’s China Programme that is opening up new avenues to strengthen the current international peacekeeping regime. However, with peacekeeping operations becoming more complex and increasingly focusing on ‘peacebuilding’, China, alongside other international actors, will be tested for the goal of building peace in post-conflict environments. In this presentation, Mariani  will look into the changing nature of multi-dimensional peacekeeping operations and the implications of China’s increased engagement in UN peacekeeping for the current international peacekeeping regime and for improved peace, security, and long-term development in Africa’s conflict-affected and fragile states.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER:

    Bernardo Mariani is a conflict and security analyst. Since 2008 he has directed Saferworld’s China Programme, which undertakes research, raises awareness and promotes international dialogue on China’s growing international role, particularly relating to conflict prevention, development and addressing peace and security challenges in conflict-affected states. Previously he has managed and implemented advocacy and research activities in the fields of conflict prevention and peacebuilding across Europe and Russia. He has also worked for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the European Commission, researching and advising on addressing trans-regional security threats.

    His publications include: Central Asia at a crossroads: Russia and China’s changing roles in the region and the implications for peace and stability (Saferworld, 2015); China’s role in UN peacekeeping operations (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015); China and conflict-affected states: between principle and pragmatism (Saferworld, 2012); and China’s growing role in African peace and security (Saferworld, 2011).
