Description
Peacekeeping Missions Stand as ‘Important Deterrent to an Even Grimmer Reality’, Senior United Nations Official Underlines in Briefing to Security Council
While peacekeeping is not a panacea for converging crises, it does support political processes and protect civilians, the United Nations senior peace operations official told the Security Council today, as members considered the factors necessary for the success of such operations amidst the drawdown of the UN’s presence in Mali and the questioning of its utility in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations, observed that a convergence of global phenomena — geopolitical tensions, climate change and transnational organized crime — “point to a future of overlapping crises”. “Peacekeeping is not a magic wand to help a country return to stability,” he said, but noted that — with the support of a unified international community — political processes and peace agreements have been implemented. Further, even where political solutions to conflicts seem distant, peacekeepers continue to protect the lives of civilians.
