Wikipedia: „In response to criticism, particularly of the cases of sexual abuse by peacekeepers, the UN has taken steps toward reforming its operations. The Brahimi Report was the first of many steps to recap former peacekeeping missions, isolate flaws, and take steps to patch these mistakes to ensure the efficiency of future peacekeeping missions.

The UN has vowed to continue to put these practices into effect when performing peacekeeping operations in the future. The technocratic aspects of the reform process have been continued and revitalised by the DPKO in its ‚Peace Operations 2010′ reform agenda. The 2008 capstone doctrine entitled „United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines[2] incorporates and builds on the Brahimi analysis.“
