Since its creation in July 2013, CIPS has continued to expand and contribute nationally and internationally. This is evident by accreditation of following courses. UN Military Observer Course, UN Staff Officers Course and Protection of Civilians Course for ITS, UNDPKO, New York. With ever evolving diversification in Peacekeeping Operations, reflected by numerous studies like Lakhdar Brahimi Report, High-level independent Panel on Peace Operations and Consortia of IAPTC and AAPTC seminars, a need was felt to establish a Research and Analysis (R&A) Cell to further build the capacity of CIPS. This R& A Cell has been approved and is functional.
