Challenges Forum is a global partnership of 50 peace operations organizations and departments in 23 countries. Members come from major troop, police and financial contributing countries to peace operations and include the permanent five members of the United Nations Security Council.
A diverse partnership of government agencies, peacekeeping training centers, think-tanks and research institutions from all around the world, we provide an impartial and informal space for dialogue. In reflection of central and key components of multidimensional peacekeeping, the partnership includes military, police and civilian actors as well as host and T/PCC countries.
In essence, we offer a unique space for members in which to step away from national positions and to engage in issues related to challenges to peace operations in fragile contexts. We continually aim to strengthen our partnership with respect to equal geographical representation.
