Source: United Nations, Peacekeeping,


This graph shows the importance of actors other than the military (Blue Helmets) and police in UN peacekeeping operations. There is a high proportion of civilians on the margins of operations where small ones are concerned (Kosovo, Pakistan, Middle East, Western Sahara, etc.), whereas in large operations (from 10,000 to over 2,000 participants), the number of civilians never exceeds a fifth of the total strength (DRC in 2010, Darfur in 2007, South Sudan in 2011, Mali in 2013, the Central African Republic in 2014, and Lebanon in 1978).
