Peace Operations from the Ground up: Challenges and Successes

Part of the Geneva Peace Week

During the Geneva Peace Week 2018, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy has the pleasure to host this event organised by the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) and Small Arms Survey

Peace Operations function in highly sensitive and increasingly risky environments, plagued by shaky political settlements and endemic lack of social trust. They must balance the short term need for operational effectiveness with long term requirement of institution-building. How can this be achieved, and sustained? This event focuses on the key role of learning and knowledge sharing. The panel discussion will take stock of the ongoing debate on UN peacekeeping reform processes, highlight challenges as well as successes, and identify innovations, from the areas of rule of law, security sector reform, as well as arms control/management in peace operations.
