Examines recent policy initiatives by states and multilateral organizations that may enhance the effectiveness of international administration and further steps that need to be taken if international actors are to be better equipped to cope with the challenge of international administration. Prompted by the Brahimi Report on peace operations (2000), the UN Secretariat has initiated a process of potentially far-reaching reforms that could strengthen the UN’s capacity to administer war-torn territories by improving its planning and management of operations and by improving its delivery of critical assets to a distressed region. States and regional organizations, too, have sought to enhance their capacity for rapid response and sustained participation. Takes stock of how much of the reform agenda has been implemented and whether it is likely to be effective. It will also discuss issues that have received insufficient attention, notably those of accountability and transparency, and suggest measures that might be adopted to address these concerns.
