Peacekeeping also face a series of challenges, including:

1. Deploy its largest, most expensive and increasingly complex operations;

2. To implement transitional strategy that have achieved a stable operational planning;

3. As far as possible to strengthen the capacity of communities to ensure long-term peace and stability.

United Nations Member States and the United Nations Secretariat continue to promote major reforms, including through:
1. The "key block theory" (2008), outlining the United Nations peacekeeping personnel in the field subject to the most important principles and guidelines;

2. Peace operations in 2010 (2006), including the Department of peacekeeping operations (DPKO) of the reform strategy;

3. The 2005 World Summit established a peacekeeping commission;

4. The high level panel on threats, challenges and change, set out a broad framework for collective security in the new century.
