The Danish effort in South Sudan (UNMISS) 

On 9 July 2011, South Sudan gained independence from Sudan as the outcome of a 2005 peace deal that ended one of Africa's longest-running civil wars.

On 8 July 2011, the UN Security Council resolved that the situation faced by South Sudan continued to consti-tute a threat to international peace and security in the region. The United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UN-MISS) was therefore established by UN Security Council Resolution 1996 (2011). UNMISS was established for an initial period of one year with the intention to renew for further periods. The mandate was most recently renewed with Security Council Resolution 2406 of March 2018.

Denmark has contributed with staff officers to UNMISS.
