Abstract

With 22,000 U.N. "peacekeepers" and US$2 billion in anticipated operational costs, the U.N. peace plan for Cambodia will move forward with a general election in 1993 as warring Cambodian faction leaders compromise in the face of international pressure. Then the "peacekeepers" will leave. Who will fill the void? With traditional Khmer factionalism, conflict-oriented Khmer socio-psychological-cultural traits, a history of foreign patronage, the existence of the Khmer Rouge, and a historical Vietnamese involvement in Khmer affairs, the road to peace, democracy, and human rights demands more than eighteen months of U.N. presence, a new constitution, and a single general election. Without long-term international commitments, Cambodia's future may be deadlier than its past.
