The 5th International Partnership for Technology in Peacekeeping Symposium will be hosted by the United Nations Department of Operational Support (DOS) in cooperation with the Government of Kazakhstan, and will be held from 28 May to 31 May 2019 in the city of Nur-Sultan, in Kazakhstan.
Every year on 29 May, the United Nations commemorates the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers. On this day, we pay tribute to all the men and women who have served as military, police or civilians in UN Peacekeeping operations. We commend their professionalism, dedication and courage and honour the memory of those who have lost their lives in the cause of peace.
Heads of Police Components (HOPCs) in UN Peacekeeping Operations and Special Political Missions will come to New York to discuss strategic police priorities and to brief the Security Council and the C-34 (the Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations).
