UN police and military personnel are "contributed" to serve under the blue flag from over 100 countries to carry out the mandates defined by the Security Council.

Peacekeeping is guided by three principles: consent of parties (countries must invite UN peacekeepers to enter; the UN cannot just send peacekeepers anywhere), impartiality, and non-use of force except in self-defense and defense of the mandate written in the resolution.
They come from nations large and small, rich and poor. They bring different cultures and experience to the job, but they are united in their determination to foster peace.
