Task Force Two Roundtable on Peace Operations

As part of IPI's Task Forces on Strengthening Multilateral Security Capacity, IPI organized a roundtable discussion of peace operations held at the Trygve Lie Center for Peace, Security, and Development. It was the first of four roundtables of Task Force Two on Inter- and Intra-state Armed Conflict and featured intensive discussion of institutional and policy challenges related to peace operations, options for overcoming these challenges, and the obstacles that may be faced in so doing.
The roundtable, which opened with general dialogue on the nature of contemporary peace operations, concluded with the development of ideas for action on how to strengthen such operations in the coming years.
