Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the definition of the rule of law and in particular that espoused by the United Nations in its post-conflict rebuilding activities. It examines whether the United Nations is only a benevolent promoter of the rule of law or whether it is itself bound by the rule of law and must therefore in all its programs ensure that the rule of law is upheld. Besides, the aim of the chapter is to examine whether the United Nations applied the rule of law in its support and creation of judicial mechanisms dealing with past atrocities, the human rights approach must be taken into account.

Keywords: post-conflict justice; rule of law; United Nations peace operations
