Research and Analysis Cell - CIPS
Since its creation in July 2013, CIPS has continued to expand and contribute nationally and internationally. This is evident by accreditation of its two courses i.e. UN Military Observer Course and UN Staff Officers Course. With ever evolving diversification in Peacekeeping Operations, reflected by numerous studies like Lakhdar Brahimi Report, High-level independent Panel on Peace Operations and Consortia ‘s of IAPTC and AAPTC regular 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 has started functioning from August 2016 in CIPS.
