The Peace Capacities Network (PeaceCap) Research Meeting was held on the 2nd and 3rd of November of 2015 in Moscow. The goal of the meeting was to discuss the progress of their research and up-coming synthesis report. The meeting was hosted by the Center for World Politics and Public Diplomacy at Moscow State Institute for International Relations (MGIMO) and organized by the Norwegian Institute for International Affairs (NUPI). 

Three members of the UN High Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations (HIPPO) - Lt. Gen. Guh, Alexander Illitchev, and Ambassador Wang Xuexian - also attended the meeting, providing both insight into the most important issues in peace operations as well as guidance for continued, valuable research endeavors in the subject area. 

During the meeting members of PeaceCap exchanged outcomes realized during their various national baseline studies conducted on the topic of peace operations. In addition, members decided to begin baseline studies of Security Sector Reform (SSR) and Civil Capacity in each respective country. Thus, as a result of this meeting PeaceCap has committed to producing a Synthesis Report on both Peace Operation and SSR in the coming year. Additionally, the network will produce an edited book on rising powers and peace operations. 

Finally, the network has committed to meeting in New York in early 2016 to present its research to the UN member states, UN secretariat and think tank community.
