The 2013 Annual Review of Global Peace Operations provides comprehensive information on all current military and—for the first time—civilian peace operations, more than 130 missions, launched by the United Nations, by regional organizations, and by coalitions. Unique in its breadth of coverage, it presents the most detailed collection of data on peace operations available.

Features of the 2013 volume include:

• An analysis of the strategic and political implications of shifting trends in conflict for the
    leadership of both civilian and military peace operations.
• A review of the deterrent effect of peace operations.
• A summary analysis of trends and developments in peace operations in 2012.
•Concise analyses of all peacekeeping and political missions on the ground in 2012.
• In-depth explorations of key missions, focusing on those that faced significant challenges or
    underwent major developments in 2012.
• Extensive full-color maps, figures, and photographs.


The editorially independent Annual Review is a project of the Center on International Cooperation at New York University.
