Africa has increasingly become the focus of peace operations and, by extension, the main arena for new developments and approaches in them. The New Geopolitics of Peace Operations II initiative aims to stimulate dialogue on international cooperation in peace operations in Africa. Largely based on six dialogue meetings with participants from different regions in Africa, this report examines perceptions of the future of peace operations on the continent. The report’s findings seek to outline pathways to improve future collaboration between African and external actors, and to strengthen their mutual understanding.
