The United Nations remains the main organization deploying multilateral peace operations, accounting for about one-third of all operations and 70 per cent of all personnel deployed on 31 December 2022 (see figure 3.6).1 However, most peace operations were deployed by regional organizations and alliances, which led 38 multilateral peace operations in 2022—one more than in 2021. These took place primarily in sub-Saharan Africa. Ad hoc coalitions of states conducted six multilateral peace operations in 2022, the same as in 2021. In addition to these, there was a series of multilateral operations that aimed to contribute to security and stability but were not classified as multilateral peace operations under SIPRI’s definition.
