Abstract

In self-image, Canada is a peaceful country that rejects realpolitic projections and kept exclusively humanitarian principles. Such self- imagination of Canada partly rests on the peacekeeping myth by which Canadians are honest and well- meaning peacemakers in a world in which are these characteristics are rare. Significantly and actively participation of Canadian troops in the UN peacekeeping mission in Croatia 1992-1995 has largely been characterized by self-imagination, including the controversies that have arisen in the decade after the end of the mission. Based on a critical approach to the Canadian national self-imagination and peacekeeping myth this paper discusses Canadian participation in UNPROFOR.
