The practice of peacekeeping began in 1948. Peacekeeping is one among a range of activities undertaken by the United Nations and other international actors to maintain international peace and security throughout the world.
The Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations (C34) was established in 1965 under the General Assembly Fourth Committee in order to review and provide recommendations on United Nations Peacekeeping Operations. The committee consists of 147 Member States involved in peacekeeping missions and observing members such as the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol).
The Special Committee holds annual substantive debates at the end of which policy recommendations for the current UN peacekeeping missions are published.
PeaceWomen monitors debates and recommendations of the Special Committee as they relate to the Women, Peace and Security agenda. We will share basic reports, outcome documents and will publicize parallel events.
