International peace and security

In 2015, the United Nations continued its efforts to address complex and interconnected threats to international peace and security. Though some were new, others were long-standing threats that had intensified or taken on more virulent forms. The Security Council’s agenda was dominated by concerns about terrorism and violent extremism. UN peace operations deployed around the world faced increasingly non-permissive environments which affected the implementation of their mandates. Amid those changes in security conditions, the Secretary-General appointed a High-level Independent Panel to carry out a review of peace operations. The Panel provided a number of recommendations to ensure that UN operations remained fit for purpose. That exercise was undertaken alongside a comprehensive review of the UN peacebuilding architecture.
