Chapter Summary

Full administrative powers were assumed by the united nation (UN) in the cases of Kosovo and East Timor. Alternative approaches are the light footprint in Afghanistan, and the post-conflict occupation of Iraq by the coalition forces. In the two cases, the UN was only granted a limited role in the post-conflict phase. In the post-conflict peace-building context, the international administration of Kosovo is, at present, the most comprehensive mission ever deployed by the UN. The powers granted to United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General encompasses a wide range of executive and legislative powers, the scope of which is unprecedented in that context. United Nations Transitional Authority in East Timors (UNTAET) responsibility for the administration of East Timor during its transition to independence encompassed an all-inclusive mandate in order to provide security and maintain law and order.
