Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The United Nations Security Council in the Post-Cold War Era: Applying the Principle of Legality contains table of contents, preface, table of cases and abbreviations. The book examines whether the Security Council ought to have legal restrictions placed on it in light of the concept of the 'rule of law'. Relevant international law is reviewed to outline the legal framework that should inhibit Council actions, as required by the principle of legality. At the core of the book is an analysis of Security Council practice in selected cases to see to what extent it has stayed within that legal framework.

Keywords: post-Cold War era; United Nations Security Council
