Chapter Summary

This chapter illustrates the evolution in the granting of administrative powers to international actors in the context of comprehensive peace-building missions. In cases where the administrations were nevertheless set up to oversee a territorial transition process, the missions administrative mandate went far beyond the mere territorial transition, and included various peace-building elements. The operation in the Congo was the first operation mixing peacekeeping elements and other relatively limited state-building activities. The case of Namibia presents the first instance of limited administrative powers in conjunction with election supervision. The actual start of the expansion of administrative mandates lies in the Cambodian experience. Subsequent cases are Somalia, the sui generis administration of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the first case in which the UN was granted more comprehensive administrative powers: the administration of Eastern Slovenia, Baranja and Western Sirmium.
