Ever since its inception, the United Nations has been engaged in supervising a kind of peace which has been not much more than the absence of fighting. Policing a peace or an armistice can be an essential internal function. It cannot be denied that the United Nations has been successful in this function in some important cases. However, action in this field has been largely pragmatic and ad hoc. This article seeks to explore ways to enable the U.N. to pursue this work in a more organized and permanent way.
