Abstract
EN
Task-sharing in peace operations raises questions about the relationships between intergovernmental institutions. Since it adopted a new institutional architecture in 1997, the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) has been involved in such relationships. Due to new prerogatives in conflict management, this actor has emerged as an institutional ‘third party’ that supports the efforts of peace operations rather than filling the classic task-sharing role of subcontractor. This article focuses on two sides of the OIF in terms of inter-organizational cooperation: a secondary role in the diplomatic sphere, and a major role in the capacity-building of peace operations (from peacekeeping to peacebuilding).
