Peace Operations Monitor is a project of the Peace Operations Working Group (POWG), a working group of Peacebuild - The Canadian Peacebuilding Network. It is a web-based resource providing up-to-date information on complex peace operations. The website offers an "integrated mission perspective," i.e. compiling information on the governance arrangements as well as military, civilian, police, humanitarian, diplomatic, and other components of current peace operations.
