This thesis analyzes the determinants of the success of UN involvement in ethnic conflicts. The research on ethnic conflicts and the UN’s conflict management efforts primarily focuses either on the UN’s failures or some specific successes. Therefore, to contribute to the literature, this thesis examines the cases of Burundi and the Central African Republic, with the peacekeeping missions deployed being the in-case variants. To investigate the determinants of success, the four peacekeeping missions that have been deployed in these two countries (ONUB, MINURCA, MINURCAT, andMINUSCA) were put through a three-fold analysis. The findings show that three determinants need to be fulfilled in order for a mission to be successful: mandate fulfillment, the establishment of order, and a better situation in the post-mission period. Moreover, the research showed that, although three criteria determine the success, several other factors contribute to the success of a peacekeeping mission.
