The exhibition Mission in Motion: Peace Made Possible, which was launched and displayed at the UN headquarters in New York from May-July 2016, is now being shown in Stockholm until 24 October.
On 8-9 May 2016, the Challenges Forum marked 20 years of cooperation in support of UN peace operations with the event ‘United Nations Peace Operations 2020: The United Nations Reviews and Their Implications for Tomorrow’s Missions’. This report is the result of that global dialogue on how to enhance the planning and conduct of modern peace operations. Deliberations drew on the findings and recommendations of the 2015 high-level and expert reviews related to UN peace operations, and considered recent progress made on their implementation as well as obstacles yet to be addressed.
In June 2015, the High-level Independent Panel on United Nations Peace Operations (HIPPO) issued the first comprehensive review of United Nations (UN) peace operations in 15 years. This occasional paper considers how to best track the implementation of the recommendations generated by the HIPPO Report. It does so by developing and discussing benchmarks for the recommendations, both listed and embedded in the HIPPO Report, in five substantive areas – Women, Peace and Security; UN Police; staff safety and security; strategic communication; and financing of peace operations.
On 8-9 May 2016, the Challenges Forum marked its 20th anniversary with the event United Nations Peace Operations 2020: The United Nations Reviews and Their Implications for Tomorrow’s Missions.
