An International Military Force

By looking at the way present international military conflicts are resolved we arrive at critical conclusions about the international status quo. Ad hoc coalitions have not been working well and national armies have continued to drain the resources in developing regions, and are highly inefficient in developed countries. I argue for the creation of a permanent international military force and examine the roles and possibilities of some existing regional military organisations, concluding that there are many advantages in forming such a Uniforce, but that the work required to found it is great.

    1. Dynamic Partnerships Have Replaced NATO with a Pseudo-NATO
    2. National Caveats Disable International Reactions
    3. The Solution is a Permanent Multilateralism
  5. Existing Military Unions
    1. Blue Helmets and the African Union
    2. NATO
