Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on a core component of UN missions-the role of human rights training with regard to law enforcement agents in peace support operationS (PSOs). The chapter begins with a discussion of the link between human rights standards and law enforcement training and explores the important role law enforcement activities play within a PSO. In addition, it addresses human rights issues related to types of training conducted for and by UN personnel, its effectiveness and disciplinary mechanisms. Challenges facing the United Nations in this regard are explored including examples and recommendations for the future are suggested. This chapter outlines a variety of ways law enforcement personnel should should also promote these efforts, though there is still room for improvement. The international community must continue to advance the role of human rights for law enforcement within a PSO. The chapter proposes some recommendations to achieve this goal.
