The Elephant in the Room: How Can Peace Operations Deal with Organized Crime?

From Afghanistan to Kosovo, from Mali to Somalia, organized crime threatens peace and security.

Deploying the Best: Enhancing Training for United Nations Peacekeepers

The success or failure of a UN peacekeeping operation is partly determined by the effectiveness of its individual peacekeepers. Yet the UN’s training strategy for peacekeepers remains at an embryonic stage. Systematic performance indicators to evaluate UN peacekeepers have yet to be implemented. And while the number of national, regional, and international centers for training UN peacekeepers has increased, greater coordination is needed to produce common standards and ensure that those who are trained actually deploy on UN missions.

Providing for Peacekeeping

Providing for Peacekeeping is an independent research project established to broaden the understanding of the factors and motivations that encourage or discourage states from contributing to UN peacekeeping operations. Its aim is to generate and disseminate current information and analysis to support efforts to “broaden the base” of troop- and police-contributing countries, improve the quality of troop and police contributions, and fill key capability gaps.

This project is done in partnership with The Elliott School at George Washington University and Griffith University.
