The year 2016 was a relatively uneventful one in which it seems that many trends, in terms of the number of missions and personnel, peaked and were now slowly declining or levelling out. Two new peace operations were started in 2016—the United Nations Mission in Colombia and the European Union (EU) Military Training Mission in the Central African Republic (CAR) (EUTM RCA). Four missions were terminated: the EU Military Advisory Mission in the CAR (EUMAM RCA); France’s Operation Sangaris, also in the CAR; the EU Advisory and Assistance Mission for Security Reform in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (EUSEC RD Congo); and the EU Police Mission (EUPOL) in Afghanistan. The number of peace operations active during 2016 decreased by one compared to 2015 to 62. The total number of personnel deployed in the field (153 056) declined by 6 per cent.
