May, 2017


This map shows all multilateral peace operations that were active as of May 2017. This includes all ongoing UN Special Political Missions, OSCE field operations, missions and operations conducted under the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), and multinational military operations authorized by the African Union that are outside the scope of the definition of a multilateral peace operation applied by SIPRI. As a result, the information in the figures and graphs on this map may not correspond with figures featured in other SIPRI research or infographics.

The markers do not show the exact site of deployments or operation headquarters. The boundaries and names shown and the designations used in this map do not imply any endorsement or acceptance by SIPRI.

Comprehensive data on multilateral peace operations is available in the SIPRI Multilateral Peace Operations Database, including fatalities, costs, mission mandates, national personnel contributions and lead nations.
