The first so-called blue helmets were deployed as military observers to the Middle East in 1948 and since then more than two million uniformed and civilian personnel have served in 71 peacekeeping operations around the world.

The exhibition shows how, over three quarters of a century, peacekeepers have supported nations in the often-difficult journey from conflict to peace, reconciliation and ultimately development.
