On the surface, little changed in 2018. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Mission in Iraq (NMI) was the only new multilateral peace operation established and only two closed—the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Preventive Mission in the Kingdom of Lesotho (SAPMIL). At 60, the number of multilateral peace operations active in 2018 was the lowest since 2013. UNMIL’s closure deserves particular attention as it is an example of a relatively successful large-scale UN peace operation. The number of personnel serving in multilateral peace operations did not change much either in 2018, decreasing by just 0.8 per cent to 144 791 by the end of the year. This was the third year in a row in which personnel deployments fell. Although there has been a slow downward trend, particularly in the numbers of personnel deployed in recent years, this trend appeared to stabilize in 2018.
