Seoul Expert Meeting on the Future of Peace Operations

October 22, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

This year marks both the seventieth anniversary of the United Nations (UN) and the recent completion of the most comprehensive assessment of UN peace operations since the Brahimi Report (issued in 2000). In June 2015, the High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO) released its report — and put forward over 100 recommendations — and in September 2015 the UN Secretary-General released its own report outlining his agenda and “priorities and key actions” to move the Panel’s recommendations forward between now and the end of 2016.

In this regard, the government of the Republic of Korea together with the International Peace Institute (IPI) held an expert meeting titled, The Future of Peace Operations in Seoul, Korea on 22 October 2015.

The objectives of the meeting were two-fold:

  1. To develop and refine a practical and shared understanding of key aspects of the reform agenda for peace operations the UN Secretary-General has put forward,
  1. To start sketching a way forward for building and sustaining the political momentum for implementation

The event was attended by a broad range of member states, representatives from the Secretariat, think-tanks and research institutes, as well as representatives from the AU.
