Abstract:This article is premised on the contention that the link between security and development is a complex, but indisputable one. It is today widely accepted that contemporary armed conflicts require sustained efforts which address not only the military dimensions of conflicts, but also their political, humanitarian, economic and social dimensions. For some years there has been a growing concern with and a specific emphasis on the necessity of linking security and development to achieve meaningful peace, and pursuing this by means of special peacebuilding measures. Based on the case studies of Kosovo, Sierra Leone and Angola, this paper argues that peacebuilding should be an essential part of any multinational peacekeeping undertaking. Attention is also paid to South Africa's view on peacekeeping. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
