JORDAN’S PARTICIPATION IN UN PEACEKEEPING MISSIONS

Keywords: peacekeeping, Armed Forces of Jordan, peacekeeping missions, Amman, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, United Nations

Abstract

The article is devoted to the participation of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in UN peacekeeping missions. By joining the UN Monitoring Mission in Angola in 1989 as an observer, the country has improved its professional level every year, becoming the largest supplier of peacekeeping police in 2015.

Jordanian peacekeepers took part in missions entrusted by the UN Security Council to other international organizations – the European Union, the African Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Therefore, it is quite a challenge to calculate Jordan’s accurate participation directly in UN peacekeeping missions. At the beginning of May 2019, according to the Jordanian representative, more than 100 thousand people of the Kingdom took part in UN peacekeeping missions. In 2015-2021, Amman considered regional security and countering terrorism, bringing peace and stability to neighboring Syria to be among its security priorities.

In recognition of the Jordanian leadership’s high level of involvement in peacekeeping and human rights, it was Jordanian Prince Zayed Raad al-Hussein who was commissioned in 2004 to prepare a report on sexual exploitation and abuse by peacekeepers. Based on Zeid’s report, a specialized group on ethics and discipline was established within the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations. In 2012, the Royal Gendarmerie of Jordan became a member of the Association of Police and Gendarmerie of Europe and the Mediterranean as a military institution. Officers from many countries are trained in military training, demining, and military medicine at a special NATO center in the Middle East, the King Abdullah Special Operations Training Center in Amman. In the Hashemite Kingdom in 2015, the Jordanian Police Department for Peacekeeping Operations was established by the Main Security Directorate, which, together with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, oversees the training of future peacekeepers.
