    Since 1948, more than 3,500 personnel have lost their lives serving in United Nations peace operations with 943 due to acts of violence. During the past four years (2013 – 2017) a consistent increase in peacekeeper fatalities due to violent acts resulted in 195 deaths. This report, directed by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, uses internal United
    Nations data and reporting to analyze the causes of fatalities due to violent acts. Based upon over 160 personal interviews and the professional experience of the authors, the report provides no-nonsense, practical, short and
    long-term actions to reduce fatalities. The report’s focus is to change the way the United Nations does business in high-security risk peacekeeping operations.
