the world order case studies should be in the "mechanisms for achieving world order" dot point in the syllabus.

CASE: -in 1998, the threat of the use of veto by two of the 5 permanent members of the Security Council was enough to stop the Security Council taking immediate action to intervene in the genocide taking place in Kosovo (Serbia) at that time. However, the prospect of a humanitarian disaster caused concern and as a result, NATO successfully intervened in Kosovo.

CASE: Rwanda Genocide (1994) – The UN has sent peace keeping troops into the dangerous territory but pulled most of them out after 10 Belgian soldiers died at the hand of the militia. The world tried to deny that Rwanda was experiencing genocide and only acted when it was too late. Many lives could have been saved had the UN intervened sooner.

CASE: East Timor (1999) – Violence in East Timor erupted following the collapse of the Indonesian govt. in 1998. The people of East Timor had been struggling for independence and when a large proportion of East Timorese voted for independence, the pro-Indonesian militias in East Timor unleashed a wave of violence against the supporters of independence. It was not the UN that initiated the operation for peace in East Timor, but the Australian govt. * unilateral response. The UN then moved to support the Australian action.



the Rwanda and the Kosovo (yugoslavia) case shows how the UN was ineffective and the East Timor case shows how the UN was effective. so basically the cases are all to do with the effectiveness of the united nations.



i hope that helps somehow. :)
