The Peace Capacities Network explore how rising powers influence peace operations, security sector reform and civilian capacities

The Peace Capacities Network is a group of research institutes located in the emerging countries (Brazil, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Russia, South Africa and Turkey) that collectively analyze the growing influence of these countries on the fields of international peacekeeping and peacebuilding.

The aim of the network is to get an insight in these topics from the perspective of these important actors, and to raise greater awareness of and engagement with important themes in contemporary peace operations.
