United Nations peacekeeping missions serve in some of the most hostile and challenging political and security environments around the world. Yet peacekeepers can have an impact on the populations they serve that goes far beyond their success or failure in preventing armed violence.

This volume is the first attempt to systematically examine the health impacts of peacekeeping missions. Davies and Rushton argue that the issues raised around peacekeeping and health are not merely technical or occupy a neutral humanitarian space: they are intensely political. As the issues examined in the book will show, a range of moral, ethical and strategic issues are raised, the responses to which involve deeply political questions around the proper role and mandate of missions.

Neither the academic literature, nor UN policy and practice, have systematically engaged with these issues to date. This book seeks to address the knowledge gap through examination of areas where peacekeeping operations have directly impacted upon civilian health, including the spread of HIV/AIDs, cases of sexual exploitation and the recent Haiti cholera outbreak, raising questions about the ethical and political consequences of the current management of the peacekeeper-civilian health interface.

This book is essential reading for scholars and policy makers alike.
