New York Seminar

Since 1996, the International Peace Institute (IPI) has held an annual seminar on peace and security for the New York-based UN community. The IPI New York Seminar is designed to foster professional development and informal policy discussions among representatives of member states, the UN Secretariat and specialized agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and independent experts. 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.
