Year in Review: United Nations Peace Operations, 2012

No day is quite the same in the life of a peacekeeper and working in the field has its demands and rewards. Peace operations continue to evolve with more robust and multidimensional mandates requiring expertise in human rights, justice, rule of law, security and political diplomacy, to name a few. The Year in Review features the activities of the UN Peacekeeping Missions in 2012, highlighting the successes and challenges that emerge throughout the year. It looks at how these challenges-- many times unforeseen, always under difficult conditions --are met by the peacekeepers on the ground as they work towards maintaining peace and security, protecting civilians, and providing support to fragile societies and governments in a post-conflict setting.

Hide / Show Abstract

The end of the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) on 31 December 2012 brought to a close over 13 years of UN peacekeeping and political missions in the country. Established in response to the internal crisis that shook the country and displaced up to 150,000 people in April and May 2006, UNMIT provided interim law enforcement and public security until Timor-Leste’s national police could be reconstituted and resume its role.
