Every year, Ghana trains hundreds of soldiers, but also police and civilians, to carry out UN peacekeeping missions, especially in Africa. With its peacekeepers, Ghana has set itself the goal of exporting peace and democracy.

The UN peacekeeping mission helped maintain order through 13 years of political turmoil and catastrophe. A new mission made up of about 1,300 international civilian police officers is set to replace the Blue Helmets.
