Honoring 70 years of UN Peacekeeping
May 29, 2018
This year marks the 70th anniversary of United Nations peacekeeping operations, which began back in May 1948 with the adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 50, and the establishment of the UN Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO). Since then, 71 peacekeeping operations have been deployed, and today there are more than 110,000 UN peacekeepers currently deployed in 14 operations around the world.
In honor of International Day of UN Peacekeepers on May 29th, and in recognition of 70 years of peacekeeping operations, we have put together a collection of scholarly content detailing the international legal aspects of peacekeeping.
