"Oh Shucks, Here Comes UNTAG!"

Peacekeeping as Adventure in Namibia
The ending of conflict is a specific enterprise. It belongs neither to war nor to peace, just as a bridge is different from either bank it connects (Simmel 1955: 110)
Rereading Simmel, one is struck by how his view of the Adventure creating an "exclave" is similar to Victor Turner's notions of anti-structure, liminality, and communitas. For Simmel the Adventure is largely experiential fantasy, others and ours, packaged as time away from ordinary life. Most studies of adventure have focused on individual adventures, and this paper suggests that one can extend the notion by incorporating the Turnerian dimension. Transitions, as Turner showed, are situations of uncertainty and danger in which one moves to a new status. Conventional analyses of Adventures see them as entailing a distinctive structural movement, either spatially and/or socially, in which the adventurer has to deal with a challenging element of unpredictability, risk, and danger, all of which combine to create a "Time Out" from the operation of the daily humdrum of society (with the challenging element of danger).
