This edition contains the main facts of 41 United Nations peace-keeping operations from 1948 through to early 1996. Wearing their familiar blue helmets or blue berets, military personnel are increasingly being joined by civilian colleagues. Together they have been given ever more challenging mandates. UN peace-keeping operations have supervized cease-fires and the separation of forces; they have helped to promote national reconciliation and respect for human rights; and they have organized and monitored elections. Humanitarian tasks have also been brought within the purview of peace-keeping.
