Missions List

The Australian Peacekeeping Memorial will honour all Australian peacekeepers. The memorial will list individually the peace keeping operations, inclusively defined, to which the Australian Government assigned personnel.

The Start / End years listed are those of Australian participation, even though the listed Mission or Operation may have started earlier or finished later than those listed.

The agreed list is as follows. This list has been cleared with the team appointed by the Australian Government to write the Official History of Australian Peacekeeping, Humanitarian and Post Cold War Operations.
