Journal of International Peace Operations (JIPO) / Stability Operations Magazine (SOm)


These archives include (nearly) all of the magazines produced by the International Peace Operations Association/International Stability Operations Association (IPOA/ISOA). Some are links to PDFs on other sites including ISOA’s archives and (which is worth a look for its many additional resources!).  At some point I’d like to include an index of all the articles and amazing authors from the industry, NGOs, governments and academia… but not today. In the meantime I just list the main themes of the issues, although there are often gems in the great magazines on unrelated topics as well.


Please note that if you have problems downloading any of these, you might also try the ISUU page
