The 63 multilateral peace operations that were active in 2017 were spread across all the main regions of the world (see table 3.1). There were 25 peace operations in Africa, 18 in Europe, 9 in the Middle East, 6 in Asia and Oceania, and 5 in the Americas. Although the majority of peace operations were located in Africa and Europe—as was the case for the entire 2008–17 period (see figure 3.7)—these two regions hosted very different types of missions. Whereas most of the peace operations in Europe were small civilian missions in post-conflict countries, the peace operations active in Africa included many major missions with significant uniformed components. Six of the missions in Africa, for example, had a strength exceeding 10 000 personnel (see section I). Their combined strength was greater than the total number of personnel deployed in all 18 peace operations in Europe.
