"A splendid anthology of facts and figures cleverly and attractively presented.”—Ramesh Thakur, International Journal

"This is an indispensable source for scholars and policymakers alike, joining up-to-date assessments of the latest peacekeeping missions with thoughtful evaluations of developments in the scholarly literature. Rarely, if ever before, have inside expertise and outside analysis of peacekeeping been so well combined."—Michael Doyle, Harold Brown Professor of International Affairs, Law, and Political Science, Columbia University

"This volume gives an unparalleled overview of how a broad range of operations have evolved and presents key trends that should enlighten the political and strategic debates about how to meet the surge in size and scope of multilateral peacekeeping." Espen Barth Eide, State Secretary for Defense, Government of Norway

"Through its in-depth analysis and data on UN and non-UN peace operations, the Annual Review enhances our understanding of the crucial need for cooperation and complementarity. [It is]an invaluable reference tool for all involved in the often-elusive search for peace."—Said Djinnit, Commissioner for Peace and Security, the African Union

"This valuable compendium of information and analysis is an essential tool for any policymaker or researcher working in the field."—Lord Hannay of Chiswick, formerly Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the United Nations


Unique in its breadth and depth of coverage, the Annual Review of Global Peace Operations presents the most detailed collection of data on peace operations—those launched by the UN, by regional organizations, by coalitions, and by individual nations—that is available. Features of the 2007 volume include:
  • an introductory essay on the priorities and processes crucial to consolidating peace in postconflict environments
  • incisive analyses of all peacekeeping missions on the ground in 2006
  • in-depth explorations of key missions and trends, focusing on those operations that have faced significant challenges or undergone major developments during the year
  • extensive illustrative graphs, charts, tables, and photographs

The editorially independent Review is a project of the Center on International Cooperation at New York University, with the support of the Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations and in cooperation with the International Peace Institute.
