There has been considerable pressure in recent years from a few critical Member States to shrink the scope of actions available to the Secretary-General. This, above all, will be the task of the implementation report.
How Peace Operations Work: Power, Legitimacy, and Effectiveness
US President Barack Obama plans to convene a peacekeeping summit in September, with his fellow world leaders. Many of the recommendations in the report will require explicit Member State backing at a senior political level. This would be a rare opportunity, for example, to unite world leaders around the few most significant reforms recommended in the HIPPO report.
Making progress on strategic force generation will surely be key, not least as will having some potential excess supply of capable troops be a prerequisite for raising the bar on the quality, performance, and accountability of peacekeepers. Some of the implications of the report are structural. Taken in conjunction with the forthcoming report of the Advisory Group on Experts for the Review of the Peacebuilding Architecture, the post development agenda, and the World Humanitarian Summit, the case for significant structural reform of the UN is building.

They fear that doing so even once will increase the pressure to do so every time. The conceptual fudges Meanwhile, on the major conceptual questions on which the panel was expected to pronounce itself — When should peacekeepers use force? On the validity of peacekeeping principles use of force only in self-defense, impartiality, and consent , the panel was ultimately unable to resolve the growing tension between the old doctrine and new requirements brought about by messy conflict environments and the growth of protection of civilians mandates.
Yet, the reluctance of UN troops to use force when civilians are threatened has been a deep embarrassment to the UN. In return, ensuring that key troop contributors are properly consulted in the process of formulating Council mandates should also go a long way in strengthening their buy-in for robust protection.
