This review article explores some lessons to be learned from Richard Caplan's comparative assessment of four interim post-conflict administrations. In the context of Caplan's work, the author develops a typology of different forms of intervention aimed at conflict management that ranges from more to less interventionist. The level of conflict management is based on the degree of authority possessed by the peace operation and on its scope of interest and actual responsibility for functioning of the state. Caplan treats 'interim administrations' in Eastern Slavonia, Kosovo and East Timor and a 'supervisory operation' in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The author considers 'advisory operations', such as those in Afghanistan and the Congo, and 'apparent non-interventions', such as those in Colombia and Sudan.
