Since the end of the Cold War, crises from the Balkans to Central Asia and Africa have forced international organizations to adapt, expand, and cooperate to end civil wars, manage humanitarian challenges, and contain terrorist threats. The Power of Dependence explores the complex relationship between two of these organizations: NATO and the United Nations. Comparing NATO and the UN's engagement in three major post-Cold War conflicts - Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan - the study finds that the level and balance of the organizations' resource dependence plays a crucial role in shaping the degree of cooperation. Its findings will be of interest to anyone concerned with understanding and building more effective international partnerships in crisis management.
The event will begin with a presentation of the book, The Power of Dependence: NATO-UN Cooperation in Crisis Management (Oxford University Press, 2015), followed by a discussion on the role of the international community in promoting peace in conflict-affected states with NYU scholars.
