Review of Political Missions 2010

The Annual Review of Global Peace Operations and the Review of Political Missions have evolved into the Global Peace Operations Review, an interactive web-portal presenting in-depth analysis and detailed data on military peacekeeping operations and civilian-led political missions by the United Nations, regional organizations, and ad-hoc coalitions. The website can be accessed here Global Peace Operations Review

CIC has published the first Review of Political Missions, covering over fifty civilian missions launched by the UN, OSCE, EU, OAS, ECOWAS and other international organizations.  This volume is the first to map an important but under-appreciated dimension of multilateral conflict management.
