RESEARCH BRIEF: Local Perceptions of Robust Protection of Civilians

Linnéa Gelot and Prabin B. Khadka investigates what forms of
protection of civilians (PoC) provided by peacekeepers that enjoy more support than others. They find that civilians who are at risk prefer peacekeepers who show resolve in protecting civilians, and their support is based on assessments of robustness.

This is one of several research briefs, which is part of a joint initiative by the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA), the Challenges Forum International Secretariat (CFIS) and the Swedish Defence University (SEDU). The aim of the series is to contribute to policy development by bringing cutting-edge research on key issues within peacekeeping to the attention of policy makers and practitioners.

The views and opinions expressed in the brief series are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the collaborating partners.

All six research briefs in the series are listed below:
