Report from the High-Level Independent Panel on UN Peacekeeping Operations

On 16 June 2015 the High-Level Independent Panel on United Nations Peace Operations presented its report to the UN Secretary General. The Panel was established by the Secretary General in October 2014 to make a comprehensive assessment of the state of UN peace operations today, and the emerging needs of the future. The report marks an important step in the review and reform of peace operations, coming 15 years after the Brahimi Report.

Ian Martin, a member of the High-Level Independent Panel, was the key note speaker at an event hosted by the United Nations Association of Sweden and the Swedish National Defence College’s International Law Centre on 2 February 2015 entitled "United Nations Peace Operations - Global Prospects and Local Challenges".
