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 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. 

In a short span since its inception, CIPS also has to its credit a peer-reviewed (academic) international journal titled: NUST Journal of International Peace and Stability (NJIPS). In addition, it also publishes CIPS Magazine that pictorially documents and disseminates the ongoing training and academic activities at CIPS.

NJIPS.  It is a peer-reviewed scholarly-based journal concerning various themes surrounding peacekeeping and peace and conflict studies as per HEC guidelines. It contains articles/ essays on Peace and Conflict issues as well as Peacekeeping. It is published bi-annually.
