Deployment of Chinese Peacekeepers in Mali

The Clingendael Institute of the Netherlands Institute of International Relations published in September 2015 a report titled "China's Evolving Role in Peacekeeping and African Security: The Deployment of Chinese Troops for UN Force Protection in Mali" by Frans Paul van der Putten.

In 2013, China dispatched a force protection unit to Mali with the UN's peacekeeping force MINUSMA.  This report evaluates the deployment with regard to: (a) its operational aspects, including possibilities for Sino-European cooperation at the local level; (b) China's stance towards UN peacekeeping operations; and (c) the relevance of peacekeeping operations for the protection of Chinese civilians and economic assets in Africa.
