The year 2011 was in many respects a year of contradiction for peacekeeping. On the one hand, after nearly a decade of record expansion in the numbers of operations and personnel deployed and the costs of financing these operations, peacekeeping showed initial signs of slowing down in 2010 and there were further indications in 2011 that peace operations—and in particular military-heavy, multidimensional operations—have reached a plateau. Fifty-two peace operations were active in 2011, with 262 129 personnel deployed, largely unchanged since 2010 (see section I in this chapter). New operations in Libya, South Sudan and Syria and expanded operations in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Haiti and Somalia were balanced by the closure or drawdown of missions elsewhere (see section III). On the other hand, 2011 saw the possible beginnings of a firm actionable commitment by the international community to the concepts of the responsibility to protect (R2P) and protection of civilians (POC) in relation to the conflicts in Côte d’Ivoire, Libya and Syria (see also chapter 1). Significantly, at the end of 2011 the Arab League deployed the first mission in its history, to Syria (see section II).
