Focus on Peacekeeping

"This special issue on peacekeeping comes two years, almost to the month, after the release of a report from the panel of experts on United Nations peace operations – the so-called Brahimi Report. In this issue, we look at what progress has been made since this landmark report was released. We also take a snapshot of the current missions in Africa, and ask what major trends and issues could shape the future of peacekeeping in Africa during the next decade."
