Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses some of the rule of law issues that affect peacekeepers in post-conflict situations. It examines some definitional aspects relevant to peacekeeping operations. The chapter gives a context for the distinct military capabilities that can be applied by a military force during a peacekeeping operation. It provides a detailed discussion of the variety of legal issues that arise for a peacekeeping force prior to, and during, a peacekeeping operation. One of the most crucial aspects of military capability that was brought to the mission in East Timor was the assistance provided by the peacekeeping force to the tasks being performed by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). The chapter concludes with a brief observation regarding how the combination of these issues can lead to the success of a peacekeeping mission from the military perspective.
