dc.description.abstract This study aimed to analyze the effectiveness of the UN peacekeeping missions, with a case study of the DRC Congo. The objectives of the study included examining the effectiveness of the mission in adhering to its mandate, the protection of civilians, influence of the peacekeepers in fostering peace agreements amongst the conflicting parties, and the mission’s effectiveness in protecting natural resources and rebuilding the country. The study engaged a secondary research that examined relevant literatures that have covered the DRC conflict and the general effectiveness of the UN peacekeeping missions. The researcher relied on journal articles, reports from NGOs, credible news reports, and UN publications to analyze the DRC peacekeeping mission. The findings of the study established that MONUC/MONUSCO was not effective in ending the 20 years old DRC conflict. However, the uniqueness of the Congo conflict made it impossible for the finding to represent other UN peacekeeping missions around the world. en_US
