Indian Centre for UN Peace Keeping (CUNPK) was established and nurtured by the USI for 12 years in its premises.  Consequently, CUNPK bloomed into a regional node of excellence on UN diplomacy and became a full-fledged unit of the Indian Army.


The USI is a founder member of UN related initiatives such as the ‘Challenges Forum’ and Responsibility to Protect (R2P) since 1986. USI regularly collaborates with Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI), Effectiveness of Peace Operations (EPON) and Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI).
