in in­spir­ing univer­sal re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion for the coun­try.

UN peace­keep­ing op­er­a­tion which be­gan in 1948 has be­come a cor­ner­stone of the in­ter­na­tional re­sponse to con­flict res­o­lu­tion. UN Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Ban Ki Moon has high­lighted UN peace­keep­ing as a “flag­ship of UN ac­tiv­ity”. UN peace­keep­ers are at the heart of in­ter­na­tional ef­forts to ad­dress some of the world’s most in­tractable prob­lems. The scope of UN peace­keep­ing has also con­tin­u­ally evolved to ad­dress is­sues of war, con­flict, peace and se­cu­rity. To­day, more than 118,000 field per­son­nel in­volv­ing mil­i­tary, po­lice and civil­ians from 122 coun­tries are de­ployed in 17 mis­sions around the world.
