    Despite decades of experience in peace operations, most United Nations (UN) operations have faced serious criticism for being unable to implement the mandate. At the same time, while the UN is in the process of establishing a clear framework for performance evaluation, as of now, there are no standard criteria to judge the performance of a peace operation. Therefore, it will be unfair to make only the peace operation missions accountable because of their inability to implement the mandate. For an objective assessment, there is a need for a conceptual framework and to standardise the success criteria. This article makes an attempt to develop a conceptual framework for evaluating peace operations. Being one of the major troop-contributing countries (TCCs), the suggested framework may help India to pitch in with its own share of contribution to the development process of the framework for performance evaluation.
