There were no significant shifts in 2016 in the distribution of peace operations across the different geographical regions of the world. Of the 62 peace operations that were active during the year, 26 were located in Africa, 18 in Europe, 8 in the Middle East, 7 in Asia and Oceania, and 3 in the Americas (see table 5.1). Africa and Europe hosted the majority of all global peace operations throughout the entire 2007–16 period (see figure 5.6). That said, there is a big difference between the types of operation conducted in the two regions. Most of the peace operations in Europe are relatively small, civilian missions.
