Civilians play an ever more central role in multidimensional and integrated peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations. Although the civilian dimension has been strengthened by a range of recent institutional innovations, peace operations are plagued by the persistent challenges of deploying the appropriate people at the right time and in the appropriate numbers. The UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) illustrates the importance of addressing the civilian capacity gap, while taking into account the interrelation of such factors as financing peace operations and recruitment. It also highlights the need for a critical analysis of the purpose and objectives of each civilian function in order to avoid duplication of tasks within missions.
