This is the second edition of the Global Peace Operations Review (GPOR) annual compilation. It is the first to collect a full year’s worth of content from the website in a single publication. Using an online platform allows us to constantly innovate, and we plan to continue to evolve between these annual releases. Producing the annual compilation allows GPOR  to curate this material thematically in a fully searchable and citable electronic book.  If you’re reading this in PDF format, any text highlighted in blue is hyperlinked back to the website.

Experts discuss the global political implications of potential and ongoing crises that may erupt or escalate in 2017.  Watch a video of the event below.  The transcript is available here.
