Providing for Peacekeeping

The Providing for Peacekeeping Project (PPP) is an independent research project which analyzes the factors 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 the University of Queensland.

The project outputs include:
• A database of all military and police contributions to UN Peacekeeping (1991-present)
• A network of experts and researchers
• Up-to-date peacekeeping profiles of specific countries
• Thematic papers
