Please answer only ONE of the following questions:
- In his lectures and writings, Prof. Stedman argues that, in the absence of a great or regional power interest, the UN should not attempt to implement peace settlements. Why does he take this position? Do you agree that the UN should stay out of humanitarian crises if the situation does not threaten the interest of a major power? Use evidence from the class material to support your answer.
2. Compare and contrast the provisions demanded at Rambouillet and UN Security Council Resolution 1244. What accounts for the differences between the two agreements? Did NATO’s war in Kosovo successfully coerce Serbia into accepting the coalition’s demands? Use evidence from the class material to support your answer.
3. Russia is bound by geopolitical interests, economic interdependence, and common history to the states of the European Union. A Russian application for membership in the EU is therefore the logical outcome of the transition process that began with the end of the Soviet Union in 1991. Do you agree or disagree? Create a thorough argument by considering both sides of the debate.
I like the last question most, though i haven't watched the lectures yet :[b]/b))
