Supporting Global and National Security

United In Peackeeping

The United Nations was founded in 1945 with a singular mission: to keep "succeeding generations from the scourge of war." Today, the range of peacekeeping activities is staggering, from stabilizing regional conflicts, to facilitating free and fair elections, to protecting civilians during humanitarian crises.

UN peacekeeping supports global and national security at a fraction of the cost of other military forces. In fact, UN peacekeeping missions operate on less than one percent of what nations spend on their respective military forces.

As the world grows more interdependent, global conflict will affect our own national security. Together, the United States and the United Nations can overcome today's and tomorrow's global challenges.
