From Afghanistan to Kosovo, from Mali to Somalia, organized crime threatens peace and security. And yet, of the current 28 UN peacekeeping, peacebuilding or special political missions, less than half have mandates related to organized crime, and those that do are not well-equipped or well-prepared to face this threat.

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 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.
