With more than 100 active conflicts
around the world, international peacekeeping operations play a central role in
reducing violence and ensuring stability. As the number of peacekeeping
operations grows, together with the size of their mandates, so does the

security,theU.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) bolsters peacekeeping
missions worldwide through its on-the-ground training programs and by training
local populations to resolve conflicts themselves before they turn deadly. To
