IMPROVING THE UNITED NATIONS CAPACITY FOR RAPID DEPLOYMENT
International Peace Institute, October 2014, by H. Peter Langille

"This report reviews eight initiatives designed to help UN peace operations to deploy rapidly, providing a list of criteria to assess and improve on each. Progress is evident in the standby arrangements system (UNSAS), the formed police unit standby initiative, the standing police capacity, the new system for reimbursements and premiums, the Global Field Support Strategy, and partnerships for rapid deployment. However, there are inherent limitations, particularly in conditional standby arrangements."
