This initiative comprises several regional dialogues on the role and perspectives of emerging powers and troop contributing countries within the wider context of the development and reform processes of global peace operations. Preliminary findings from the first series of regional dialogues were presented and discussed with the New York peace operations expert community on March 4, 2014. Beside other speakers, H.E.
