On 10 May 2016, the exhibition Mission in Motion: Peace Made Possible was launched and is displayed on the outer wall of the General Assembly in the Visitors' Lobby of the UN headquarters in New York. We welcome the UN’s decision to extend our exhibition until 31 July 2016. The exhibition tells the story of current UN peace operations without simplifying what is an inherently complex flow of actions and developments.
Peace operations are often described as moving from one activity and process to another, from keeping peace to building peace, from protecting people from violent physical threats to protecting human rights and socio-economic development. In practice, however, the peace operations of today unfold in a dynamic manner, constantly adapting to changing conditions and needs on the ground; moving back and forth, up and down, depending on resources, achievements, setbacks, challenges and opportunities.
The exhibition has been developed and curated by the Challenges Forum and Färgfabriken in consultation with the UN Departments for Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support.
