 UN Peacekeeping Operations are activities undertaken by the UN to resolve conflicts around the world. In traditional Peacekeeping Operations, peacekeeping forces composed of national contingents of troops and cease-fire monitoring missions (in principle composed of unarmed military personnel) perform such tasks as monitoring cease-fires, separating hostile forces, and maintaining buffer zones. More recently, Peacekeeping Operations have expanded to include civilian police activities and administrative assistance activities, such as election and human rights monitoring, reconstruction and development, and organization and institution building.
