My presentation critically engages with the appropriation of the terminology ‘conflict management’ by scholars studying global governance since the 1990s and the ways in which they use history (or not) in their research. I expand on the history of humanitarian interventions because they are often mentioned as an (or the) historical example of ‘conflict management’. The paper reflects on the meanings of this old and very controversial, biased and selective international practice, which encompassed - and continues to encompass - conflict management dimensions. The presentation also refers to the ways in which in the 1970s and 1980s some scholars looked at ‘conflict management’ activities of the United Nations, engaging with some insights from twentieth-century history.
