Impression of the first compound workshop

As peacekeeping missions continue to multiply, representatives of the Dutch Ministries of Defence and Foreign Affairs, plus experts from other fields, come together to discuss their inevitable physical manifestation: the mission compound. So often in the past a major inconvenience for local populations, could compounds of the future hold they key to improved development and diplomatic efforts?

The workshops are part of a long term project done in collaboration with The New Institute.

The results will be made public in the fall of 2014.
