Chapter Summary

The international administration of territory, in which comprehensive administrative powers are exercised by, on behalf of or with the agreement of the United Nations (UN), has recently re-emerged in the context of reconstructing states after conflict. The cases of Kosovo and East Timor have frequently been described as ground-breaking and unique in peace-building and post-conflict reconstruction literature, and have triggered both interest and criticism. The concept of international administration has thus to be seen as a method like the light footprint approach within the broader framework of peace-building missions. The notion of post-conflict administration thus clearly identifies both the method used and the environment in which they operate, since it stands for those administrations set up in a post-conflict environment. This chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: East Timor; international administration; Kosovo; light footprint approach; peace-building missions; Post-Conflict Administration; United Nations (UN)
