IPI Peacekeeping Database

We are currently updating the dataset. Estimated time of completion: Monday Oct 3, 2016 at 4pm.

Drawing from archival UN records, the International Peace Institute Peacekeeping Database presents the first publicly available database of total uniformed personnel contributions of each contributing country by month, by type (troop, police, or expert/observer) and by mission, from November 1990 to present. The data is updated monthly.
