Whereas the term peacekeeping is used to describe a way of helping countries torn by conflict create conditions for sustainable peace, peacemaking is a means of bringing about peace through a willful effort to prevent or mitigate conflict rather than a passive stance that hopes to maintain the status quo. This research aims to provide an overview of the primary documentation of those political organs relating to the history, structure, and laws of international peacekeeping. But its purpose is to show through an analysis of these laws and histories that the costs and benefits of keeping peace in a particular region call upon peacemaking operations. The focus of this research is southern Thailand with the idea that such a study will help bring back the security, stability of the region and will support the reconstruction, development and integration of the varying differences while keeping in mind some of the contemporary challenges of globalization.
