Global Peace Operations 2018: Year in Review

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Jun 13, 2018 | Center on International Cooperation, NY University, Richard Gowan, Ryan Rappa

Despite the “primacy of the political” in UN peace operations, budgetary pressures, shifting geopolitics in the Security Council, and support for large missions focused on managing conflict, have left  little hope for political solution. The new Secretary-General has called for more attention to prevention and sustaining peace through the Action for Peacekeeping initiative. In this report by the Center on International Cooperation, NY University, Richard Gowan and Ryan Rappa add context to reform by documenting other developments in peace operations, including operational, strategic, and financial challenges; debates over the values and practices of peacekeeping; and progress - or lack thereof - toward gender parity and geographical diversity among the UN leadership.
