Chapter Summary

This chapter describes the legal basis upon which the united nation (UN) can authorise the setting up of peace-building missions and international administrations. It analyses the powers of the Security Council under the UN Charter, in which regard we establishes not only the legal foundation of these missions in the UN Charter, but also the connection between Security Council action and state failure, domestic jurisdiction, and self-determination. The chapter describes the powers of the General Assembly. The International Trusteeship System was established in the UN Charter for the administration of trust territories placed there under by an individual agreement in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Charter. The significant expansion of the Security Councils competence to deal with a certain situation is noteworthy, as post-conflict reconstruction is aimed at the consolidation of internal structures to maintain international peace and security.
