Chapter Summary

Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict is at the core of the work of the United Nations Security Council for peace and security. The maintenance of international peace and security and international cooperation in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all are purposes of the United Nations as defined by the Charter. Respect for human rights is itself fundamental to the promotion of peace and security, and a unified United Nations approach to these ends is essential to the fulfilment of these two Charter-mandated objectives. The early involvement of OHCHR in the planning and implementation of human rights activities by peace-keeping operations can contribute to the sustainability of the achievements of peacekeeping operations after their withdrawal. During the liquidation phase of peace operations, DPKO will make special arrangements for the safe handling and separate archiving of documents and files produced by human rights components.
