Deployment of Blue Helmets in peace operations (PO), 2018

Source: United Nations, Department of Peace Operations (DPO),


This map shows peacekeeping operations in which soldiers sent by contributing states were deployed in January 2018. Several operations rallied over 10,000 Blue Helmets: four in Central Africa, one in Mali and one in Lebanon. States on the Indian subcontinent (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Nepal) provided substantial numbers, notably for operations in the DRC, South Sudan, and Darfur. African states also made a considerable contribution to operations in neighboring countries (for example Ethiopia, Rwanda and Egypt in the case of Darfur, Sudan, and South Sudan, and the West African states in the case of Mali). A preference for helping nearby states can also be seen in Europe, which sent troops first and foremost to the operation in Lebanon.
