UN Peacekeepers : Protecting Civilians, Protecting Peace

United Nations peacekeepers have been deployed for more than seven decades. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Security Council resolution which put protection of civilians at the heart of UN Peacekeeping. Today, more than 95% of our peacekeepers have a mandate to protect civilians. These peacekeepers put themselves in harm’s way to protect civilians from violence every day.
