Center on International Cooperation Study: Peacekeeping Deployments Grew At Slower Pace in 2011

April 13, 2012

Peacekeeping operations grew in 2011, but at a slower rate than in previous years, according to a new report by the Center on International Cooperation (CIC) at NYU.

The change was largely attributable to a decline in United Nations peacekeeping deployments last year.

The findings appear in CIC’s Annual Review of Global Peace Operations 2012.

The United Nations authorized two new peacekeeping missions in 2011, the UN Mission in South Sudan and the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei. Yet, in 2011, overall UN peacekeeping deployments experienced their first contraction since 2003.

However, because this decline was offset by increases in NATO and AU deployments, overall peacekeeping deployments continued to grow in 2011, though at a significantly reduced pace compared with previous years.

“Rapidly changing environments tested the ability of peacekeeping missions to
respond to violence,” the study concluded. “The deepening global financial crisis continues to impact peacekeeping, and there is now greater pressure to limit new deployments and draw down large-scale peacekeeping
operations.”
