Chapter Summary

Probably one of the most immediate tasks of post-conflict reconstruction missions is the restoration and re-establishment of basic civil administration. This chapter first deals with civil administration by focusing on providing public services. It then relates to economic reconstruction, which must be seen as part of civil administration, although in the case of Kosovo a separate pillar was set up to oversee that economic reconstruction. This was however a pragmatic solution to the fact that United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) operated as a federation of international organisations, each having a distinct field of operation. Next, the chapter is dedicated to the re-establishment of law and order, and the reform of the security sector. The chapter discusses the provision of emergency relief and the problem of refugees and internally displaced persons.

Keywords: civil administration; economic reconstruction; emergency relief; essential public services; ethnic minority refugees; internally displaced persons; law and order; Security Sector Reform; UNMIK
