Latest ZIF kompakt reviews the Cruz report on casualties in UN missions


In the latest ZIF kompakt Andreas Wittkowsky reviews the Cruz report, which analyzes casualties due to malicious acts in UN missions. More than 90% of all fatalities are military personnel, i.e. blue helmets. The report urges the UN to overcome defensive posture, to dominate the environment of UN bases and thereby increase security. In order to deliver without undue fatalities, the blue helmets need better leadership, better capabilities and better equipment. The ZIF kompakt is available here (German only).
