- Since the inception of UN Peacekeeping in 1948, approximately 3,900 military, police, and civilian personnel have died in the line of duty due to violence, accidents, and illnesses, according to the United Nations.

- On May 29, UN offices, Member States, and non-governmental organizations hold solemn ceremonies to honour the lost peacekeepers.

According to the United Nations, their roles have expanded from monitoring ceasefires to protecting civilians, disarming former combatants, safeguarding human rights, promoting legal governance, supporting fair elections, and reducing landmine risks.
