Chapter Summary

This chapter illustrates the limits governing the exercise of transitional authority by peacekeeping operations, with a particular focus on law enforcement, in accordance with Status of Forces Agreements (SOFAs), rules of engagement (ROE), and standing operating procedures (SOPs). It discusses the sources and limits of transitional authority by tackling in particular the limits set by SOFAs. The chapter, then, illustrates the limits set by ROE and SOPs and demonstrates that they derive from the implementation, on the one hand, of general principles of international humanitarian and human rights law and, on the other hand, of lead organizations? and/or contributing states? policies. Key examples of limits of transitional authority on law enforcement tasks, the Kosovo Force?s (KFOR?s) law and order mission, the protection and defense of designated property and operational detention, are presented. Finally, the chapter explains that transitional authority by contemporary peacekeeping operations is compatible with international legal standards.
