Praise for the Annual Review:

"A vital reference for peace and conflict studies and global politics collections."—Library Journal

"Anyone who follows peace operations needs a copy of the Annual Review on his or her desk. Its detailed annual updates of all current missions make it an indispensable reference tool, and its opening essays are always thoughtful, often provocative."—William J. Durch, Henry L. Stimson Center
"The Annual Review combines the most authoritative and current data on peace operations with the analytical capability and editorial independence of a major university. The result is a splendid presentation of facts and figures."—Ramesh Thakur, University of Waterloo

"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 2010 volume include:                        

• a thematic focus on establishing the rule of law, now a core function of global peace operations
• a summary analysis of trends and developments in peace operations through 2009
• concise analyses of all peacekeeping missions on the ground in 2009
• a review of the reform initiatives enacted during 2009
• in-depth explorations of key missions, focusing on those that faced significant challenges or
    underwent major developments
• 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.
