This map offers a comprehensive overview of the peace operations deployed by the UN, EU, AU, OSCE, and other organizations.
A comparison with last year’s edition shows a moderate decline in the number of personnel deployed worldwide. This is largely due to the closures of the UN operation in Côte d’Ivoire and the EU operation in Afghanistan, as well as the downsizing of several other UN missions. Another notable development is the growth of the personnel numbers deployed in UN Special Political Missions.
