Description:
Today, a little more than 110,000 military, police and civilian staff currently serve in 15 peacekeeping missions, representing a decrease in both personnel and peacekeeping missions, as a result of peaceful transitions and the rebuilding of functioning states.  However, the reduction in personnel and peacekeeping missions in the intervening years by no means indicates that the challenges faced by the UN are diminishing. The emergence of new conflicts spreading beyond local and regional boundaries signal that the demand for field missions is expected to remain high and peacekeeping will continue to be one of the UN’s most complex operational tasks. We have to urgently find effective and immediate solutions to elevate the role and importance of Peacekeeping missions all across the globe.
