Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the legal aspects related to the detention of individuals during peacekeeping operations, drawing from the experience learned with the Kosovo Force (KFOR). It describes the characteristics of the international presence in Kosovo and the need for detentions. The chapter looks at the special requirements under human rights law for the detention of individuals and the specific case of Kosovo. Protecting individuals from gross human rights violations was the proclaimed purpose and justification of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO's) intervention in Kosovo in March 1999.

Keywords: detention of individuals; human rights violations; Kosovo Force (KFOR); North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO); peacekeeping operations
