Chapter Summary

The UN practice with respect to Article 40 of the Charter needs to be examined in the light of the development of its peacekeeping institution. Five different types of peacekeeping measures that can potentially be undertaken under Article 40 of the Charter are call for cease-fire, peace observation, deployment of peacekeeping forces, provisional territorial administration and preventive arms embargo. The significance of peace observation as a peacekeeping measure lies in its ability to facilitate the parties compliance with the call for a cease-fire by the Security Council, aiming at an early settlement of the conflict with a minimal disturbance of international peace and security. As distinct from a peace observation mission which often consists of a small group of military observers, peacekeeping forces are deployed with large contingents of troops contributed by member states.
