75th Anniversary of Australians on Peacekeeping Operations Commemorative Events

Australia was the first nation to deploy peacekeepers under a United Nations mandate and did so 14 September 1947 when it sent four military observers to the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia) during the independence struggle. Since then, Australia has deployed uniformed peacekeepers and peacemakers continuously from the Australia Defence Force and the Australian Federal Police (state and territory police officers under the auspices of the AFP). Additionally Australia has extended its reach to diplomatic and support arrangements through the utilisation of non-uniformed civilians from DFAT and from a great number of public and private organisations to make up Australia‚Äôs commitment to global peace building efforts
