What are, or could be, the countervailing forces? To explain the decline in the number of armed conflicts from the mid-1990s, the Human Security Report in 2005 made the case that the only empirically viable explanation was ‘the extraordinary upsurge of activism by the international community that has been directed toward conflict prevention, peacemaking and peace-building’.25 Despite the shortcomings of UN peace operations during the closing decade of the 20th century, when lessons needed to be ‘bitterly and repeatedly’ learned, all other explanations for the growth of peace turned out to be inadequate.26
