“An essential resource for understanding peacekeeping’s contribution to international security.”—Stephen Stedman, Stanford University

“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, Columbia University


Unique in its breadth 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 2009 volume include:                        

• a discussion of the complex nature of contemporary peace operations and their strategic aims
• a summary analysis of trends and developments in peace operations through 2008
• concise analyses of all peacekeeping missions on the ground in 2008
• in-depth explorations of key missions, focusing on those that faced significant challenges or underwent major developments
• special attention to the cluster of interrelated conflicts and peace operations across the Horn of Africa
• extensive, full-color maps, figures, 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.
