3 Apr 2024
Research Paper

Co-authored by the NYU Center on International Cooperation and the Institute for Security Studies, this policy brief examines the path forward for United Nations peace operations in light of the current challenges, lessons learned from the past decade, and available opportunities. As member states look ahead to the Summit of the Future, authors outline key recommendations for a new approach to peace operations, which include managing ambitious mandates, fostering comprehensive and flexible peace operation approaches, tapping the potential of partnerships, taking mission transitions into consideration, and having adequate resourcing.
