Two meetings focused on missions led by the Department of Political Affairs: one on the United Nations Support Mission in Libya and one on the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq. Three meetings concerned the African Union Mission in Somalia. Three meetings focused on thematic issues, including technical assessment missions, military capability studies and highlights of the activities of the Office of Military Affairs, and a study on helicopter force generation challenges by the New York University Center on International Cooperation.
