Abstract

Global Governance 23 (2017), 101–120 Extending UN Peacekeeping Financing Beyond UN Peacekeeping Operations? The Prospects and Challenges of Reform Katharina P. Coleman Adequate financing is fundamental to the success of any peace operation. In June 2015, the High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations ad- vanced three proposals that would extend UN peacekeeping financing be- yond its current boundaries to produce a more comprehensive system of funding peace operations. It advocated giving UN special political missions access to backstopping and transitional funding mechanisms created for peacekeeping operations; providing more predictable financing for UN- mandated African Union–led peace operations; and establishing a single peace operations account to finance all UN peace operations. Yet reform- ing UN peacekeeping financing is notoriously difficult, not least because of deeply politicized cleavages among member states. This article explores the ongoing debates that the panel’s proposals— and the subsequent UN Secretariat implementation report—intersected with and contributed to. It also highlights the complex interplay between panel members, Secretariat officials, and member states in the politics of UN financing reform. It identifies three critical success factors for reform proposals: proposal quality, the proposal’s ability to avoid inflaming polit- ical cleavages, and the strength and commitment of the support
