A quick “googling” of the terms “unintended consequences” and “peacekeeping operations” reveals that, with more than 14,000 references, the topic has already found both interest and an audience. Moreover, with news breaking in late May 2008 that children in post-confl ict areas are being sexually abused by peacekeepers and aid workers, the unwelcome consequences of peacekeeping have once more been pushed into the limelight. Yet, the edited book by Aoi, de Coning and Thakur claims this to be a neglected area of research, with most researchers and practitioners being “preoccupied with the intended consequences”. It is therefore instructive to see whether this is true and whether this book contributes, or introduces, anything new to the discussion.
