Over the last two decades, European countries have contributed relatively few troops and police to UN peace operations, in comparison to African and Asian states.

This graph shows the evolution of authorized and actual personnel levels on MONUC/MONUSCO from 1999 to present.


UN peacekeeping missions have mostly been staffed by non-Europeans since 1990. As this chart shows, European uniformed personnel contributions (dark blue) have rarely exceeded 15% of total UN forces since the early 2000s, and hover around 5% of all peacekeeping personnel as of February 2017.
