Being a Peacekeeper

The Being a Peacekeeper Series (BAPK) is a joint initiative of the International Peace Institute and the Pearson Centre. The series of high-level regional roundtables brings together existing, emerging, and potential troop- and police-contributing countries with senior UN officials in an informal setting to allow for an open exchange of experiences, successes, concerns, and opportunities.

South Asia

With the projected increase in demand for UN peace operations worldwide, and the increasingly transnational nature of threats to human security — including climate change, terrorism, organized crime and armed conflict — there are opportunities for the UN and South Asia to develop stronger cooperation to address transnational security threats.

To that end, IPI's South Asia-related programming seeks to promote a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by the region, and better connect the UN community to regional research and policy networks through a series of policy research projects and by using IPI's convening capacity to advance informal dialogue among scholars, practitioners and diplomats.

Its objective is to deepen the expertise of participants on critical policy issues. The seminar also provides participants with an opportunity to compare different regional and national experiences and to develop closer professional relationships.

Middle East

IPI’s Middle East Program focuses on broad, cross-regional research and the facilitation of policy dialogue. Particular emphasis is placed on helping the Middle East peace process move forward through third-party involvement.

The program has three primary areas: 1) research and analysis focusing on qualitative projects, such as public opinion research, with the aim of injecting local voices into decision making at the UN; 2) the facilitation of policy dialogue through the convening of forums and workshops; 3) a Middle East Peace Process Compendium, to be published by Oxford University Press.

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.
