Chapter Summary

This chapter seeks to address a number of operational legal questions that confront international peace enforcers in situations where war or armed conflict in a foreign territory has not occurred or has ceased. It also addresses, albeit to a limited extent, matters pertaining to Status of Forces Agreements (SOFAs) in theater and, indeed, examines this matter first before proceeding to consider the particular issue of the upholding by peace support forces of public order among the civilian population of Kosovo. KFOR may endeavor to engage in law enforcement and to tackle problems of crime and public disorder. It may construct procedures for entry, search, seizure, arrest, detention, questioning, charging, and so on, before delivering its suspects to civilian agencies for further disposal. But until the fundamental divisions within Kosovo in respect to the very identity of the state in that region are resolved, KFOR cannot hope to eliminate such problems.

Keywords: civilian agencies; crime and public disorder; KFOR; Kosovo; Status of Forces Agreements (SOFAs); United Kingdom; Yugoslavia
