Providing for Peacekeeping analyzes the factors that encourage or discourage states from contributing to UN peacekeeping operations. We aim to generate and disseminate current information and analysis to support efforts to “broaden the base” of troop- and police-contributing countries, improve the quality of troop and police contributions, and fill key capability gaps. Providing for Peacekeeping is an independent research project of the International Peace Institute, the Elliott School at George Washington University, and the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect at the University of Queensland.
