Agenda for Peace
Agenda for Peace was the signature reform initiative of Secretary-General Kofi Annan, launched to better position the United Nations to deliver in the area of peace and security following the end of the Cold War. The associated report is contained in document A/47/277–S/24111.
The report on Agenda for Peace was issued in response to the request of the Security Council, during a meeting at the level of Heads of State on 31 January 1992, for the Secretary-General "to prepare…his analysis and recommendations on ways of strengthening and making more efficient within the framework and provisions of the Charter the capacity of the United Nations for preventative diplomacy, for peacemaking and for peace-keeping.".
The proposals under Agenda for Peace were closely related to the concurrent effort to restructure the Secretariat, which, inter alia, established the Department of Political Affairs and Department of Peacekeeping Operations.
The General Assembly adopted a number of resolutions on Agenda for Peace, including:
- 47/71 of 14 December 1992 on the comprehensive review of the whole question of peacekeeping operations on the basis of reports of the Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations
- 47/120A of 18 December 1992 on An Agenda for Peace: preventative diplomacy and related matters
- 47/120B of 20 September 1993 on An Agenda for Peace
- A/47/277–S/24111 An Agenda for Peace: Preventative diplomacy, peacemaking and peace-keeping
- A/47/965–S/25944 Implementation of the recommendations contained in "An Agenda for Peace"
