Summary Report: Advancing CHM in UN Peacekeeping
On 24 May 2023, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the United Nations Department of Peace Operations (DPO), PAX, and Center for Civilians in Conflict (CIVIC) co-organized an in-person closed-door roundtable as part of the annual PoC Week on the sidelines of the UN Security Council Debate on PoC. In this event, Member States, including UN Security Council members, troop- and police-contributing countries (T/PCCs), Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations (C-34) members, regional organizations, UN personnel, and civil society discussed good practices and lessons learned by States and regional organizations in developing and implementing civilian harm mitigation (CHM) measures.
The aim of the roundtable was to identify and share areas of relevance, insight, and traction for UN peacekeeping's own CHM policies and practices.
The event Summary Report - which you can find below - contains the main themes that were discussed, as well as lessons learned, and good practices.
