Partnership for Peace Review

The aim of this interdisciplinary journal is to provide a forum for the exchange of information and expertise among nations in the area of international security, peace studies, and military cooperation-related issues as well as to emphasize the principle that “global problems require global solutions” with the effective contributions of all nations. With this view in mind, the publication will seek to establish an up-to-date knowledge base on peacekeeping operations undertaken by international bodies including NATO, the United Nations, the European Union, and the Organization of African States. The review will be published twice yearly, fall and spring, by the Partnership for Peace Training Center (PfP) in Ankara, Turkey, under the auspices of NATO.
