The Annual Review of Global Peace Operations is the most comprehensive publication of its kind, covering both UN and non-UN peace operations during 2011. The Annual Review 2012, the seventh edition in the series, begun in 2006, continues to inform policy-makers, academics, practitioners, the media, and peacekeeping stakeholders about peacekeeping trends and mission developments. Unique in its breadth of coverage, the Annual Review provides analysis and detailed data on UN, AU, NATO, EU, and ad hoc peacekeeping operations. Released prior to the UN General Assembly's Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations, the Annual Review is an invaluable resource for the international community as it considers the crucial role of peacekeeping operations. The project is supported by the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations and Department of Field Support, as well as by the African Union Peace and Security Department.
