Contributing Country Profiles
The Providing for Peacekeeping Project is an independent research project between the International Peace Institute, the Elliott School at George Washington University and the Asia Pacific Centre for Responsibility to Protect at the University of Queensland. The project aims to analyze the factors that encourage or discourage states from contributing to UN peacekeeping operations.
The UN has previously implemented PPP’s recommendations, such as the recommendation to create a “strategic force generation cell” which will contribute to improving the quality of contributions and fill key capability gaps.
Providing for Peacekeeping’s researchers network contributes up-to-date country profiles. Each profile examines recent trends related to UN and non-UN peacekeeping operations, the country’s internal decision-making process on whether to contribute uniformed personnel to the UN, the rationales driving its contributions, the major barriers to contributing, current challenges, key domestic champions and opponents, major capabilities and caveats, as well as providing sources for further reading. Profiles are available online and in PDF format.
There are currently 62 profiles available for countries from Africa, Europe, North America, Oceania, and South America.
