Evolution of the protection of civilians in UN peacekeeping

This Special Report, published by ASPI, includes contributions from leading experts in the field, including Stimson Center experts, Victoria Holt, Managing Director, and Aditi Gorur, Senior Fellow and Director of the Protecting Civilians in Conflict program, examining some of the contemporary challenges facing UN peacekeeping missions and the actions that can be taken by member states to strengthen consensus on some issues of contention, including the role of the Security Council, managing host state consent, addressing performance and accountability, and identifying the potential limits of UN peacekeeping.

Additionally, the report explores the evolution in discussions taking place over the last decade, identifying some of the highlights and findings emerging from a series of ten workshops co-hosted by the Permanent Missions of Australia and Uruguay to the United Nations as one example of member state engagement on the issue.
