Report of the Panel on United Nations Peace Operations

Published August 21, 2000

The exective summary of this UN document, also known as the Brahimi Report, states, “The Secretary-General has asked the Panel on United Nations Peace Operations, composed of individuals experienced in various aspects of conflict prevention, peacekeeping and peace-building, to assess the shortcomings of the existing system and to make frank, specific and realistic recommendations for change. Our recommendations focus not only on politics and strategy but also and perhaps even more so on operational and organizational areas of need.”
