Chapter Summary

Today?s peace support operations (PSOs), as a security policy means, are only a part of the peace and nation-building process. This chapter offers an overview of the challenges and difficulties faced by PSOs and their law enforcement institutions in the fight against organized crime. It shows the legal aspects and the practical consequences of the impact of organized crime on PSOs down to the level of the national contingents as experienced in the field. The missions in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) and Afghanistan are highlighted as case studies. If the political direction of a mission is vague or not sufficiently focused, the establishment of the rule of law may take too long, giving criminal networks time to build up or extend parallel structures.

Keywords: civilian peace supporting operators; organized crime; peace support operations (PSOs); post-conflict environment; rule of law
