Today, on International Day of United Nations (UN) Peacekeepers, we pay tribute to peacekeepers, past and present, who have served on missions around the world to advance international peace and security.

This year’s theme, Women in Peacekeeping – A Key to Peace, coincides with the 20th anniversary of the landmark UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, which recognised the impact of conflict on women and children, and encouraged women’s participation across all aspects of the peace process.
