This publication by The UN System Staff college (UNSSC) and the Center for for International Peace Operations (ZIF) is the result of the 2014 Dialogue Series, a seminar for Deputy Special Representatives of the Secretary-General (DSRSGs).

Noting the enormous policy and programmatic implications that the emergence of non-state armed groups had on  peace operations, this publication documents field practices and case studies, assessing the capacity of the UN system to respond and deal with these emerging actors.
