Principles and Guidelines for UN Peacekeeping Operations

This course has been developed in consultation with the Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations' Policy, Evaluation and Training Division. It is based on the internal DPKO/DFS publication entitled 'United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines', which is more widely known under its informal name 'Capstone Doctrine'. This publication is a comprehensive document that defines and promulgates available peacekeeping doctrine, definitions, procedures, and policy.

Implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions on the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda in Asia and the Pacific

The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about the importance of UN SCRs on women, peace, and security; to build capacities about the possible ways of their implementation; and to promote their sustainable implementation at the regional and national level. While informative for any student interested in the topic, the course was especially designed for people who work in the area of peace and security at the national or regional levels in Asia and the Pacific, and who require a practical tool to support and facilitate the implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda. The course is based on background information, analysis, and a wide range of studies. The first three lessons focus more broadly on the UN’s role in promoting a peace and security agenda, including from a gender perspective and the role of SCR 1325 (2000) and subsequent resolutions. Within this context, Lessons Four and Five highlight the challenges and priorities specific to the Asia and the Pacific region.

The course is based on background information, analysis, and a wide range of studies.
