Emerging Role of Peace Operations

The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations.

What do we do?

WFUNA works to support the role of Peace Operations through its global network of United Nations Associations, serving as a bridging gap between the UN, Member States and civil society. Engaging youth representatives and the WFUNA Youth Network in the emerging role of Peace Operations is an additional core focus area. Through a recent formalized partnership with the Challlenges Forum, WFUNA will further develop new approaches to add to the evolving nature of Peacekeeping at the United Nations. 

Peace Operations in the 21st Century

The role of Peace Operations has fluctuated throughout the history of the United Nations, with success stories, coupled with stark failures. In a bid to reclaim the relevance of Peace Operations for the UN system, Secretary-General Ban-ki Moon convened a High Level Panel to review the current state of Peace Operations and to examine the emerging needs of the future. The resulting 2015 report of the High Level Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO) outlined four ambitious shifts in a bid to reclaim relevance for the role of Peacekeeping within the UN system:

  • (1)  Politics must drive the design and implementation of peace operations;
  • (2) The full spectrum of United Nations peace operations must be used more flexibly to respond to changing needs on the ground;
  • (3) A stronger, more inclusive peace and security partnership is needed for the future;
  • (4) The United Nations Secretariat must become more field-focused and United Nations peace operations must be more people-centred.
