- Security in Practice 
In early 2008, the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) released a hundred page document entitled: “United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines”. The Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN DPKO and the Training for Peace Programme at NUPI, with support from the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, organized a seminar in Oslo, on 14-15 May 2008, with the aim of providing a small but globally representative group of researchers the opportunity to discuss the new doctrine with the drafters. The aim of the seminar was to create an opportunity for the research community to engage the authors of the doctrine, to facilitate a dialogue on the key issues contained in the doctrine, and to stimulate further knowledge development about the future of UN peacekeeping operations.
