This medal was established in June 1995 to recognize those military personnel and civilian police serving the United Nations in capacities other than established peace-keeping missions and United Nations Headquarters. The qualifying period is 90 days of service.
The colour combination consists of a large blue stripe framed between two white stripes. In order to identify the theater in which the personnel will have earned the medal, a bar is added with the name of the country or the United Nations organization (UNHCR, UNSCOM, etc).
