THE LOGISTICS OF A PEACEKEEPING MISSION: A CASE STUDY OF WESTERN SAHARA

Sylvio de Souza Ferreira, Eduardo Xavier Ferreira Glaser Migon

Abstract


This is a case study that reflects on the complexity of logistics activity in the context of a peace operation. A preliminary synthesis is made on the Western Sahara issue, as well as a brief theoretical review of the concept of Military Logistics. The logistics of the main participants of the conflict are analyzed: the Royal Army of Morocco, the Polisario Front and MINURSO. The approaches are essentially different: national logistics, "survival" logistics and international logistics.
