On a mission for peace

The goal of international civilian peace missions is to ensure long-term security. Germany supports civilian peace initiatives by the United Nations, the OSCE and others by providing financial support and human resources.

Peace missions come in all shapes and sizes. Providing safe areas for people who need protection, providing food and medicine, but also encouraging negotiation and dialogue. Securing peace is a core pillar of Germany’s foreign policy. As well as military personnel and police, Germany sends a large number of civilian helpers all over the world. Every conflict is different. And those sent out to help constantly face new challenges.
