Exit Strategies and State Building

Richard Ponzio

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the new UN peacebuilding architecture—the Peacebuilding Commission, Peacebuilding Fund, and Peacebuilding Support Office—in relation to the challenges faced by the termination of UN peacekeeping operations and the requirements for the maintenance of peace in the period following exit. The PBC was established to facilitate the exit of costly peacekeepers while supporting the transition and reconfiguration of assistance by other parts of the UN and international system that remain involved in postconflict states. This chapter considers how the UN Security Council has used the Peacebuilding Commission, from its outset, to help sustain international attention in postconflict Burundi and Sierra Leone following the drawdown and withdrawal of UN peacekeepers from these two countries. Given the Commission’s infant status, it remains to be seen what its own exit strategy will be for the countries on its agenda.
