Chapter Summary

The UN Charter recognises that the Security Council can adopt two types of resolutions: recommendations of a hortatory nature; and decisions of a mandatory nature. The resolutions of different legal forces give rise to different legal effects, entailing different legal consequences upon the pre-existing legal order. The legal effects of peacekeeping measures under the UN Charter depend on whether it is adopted as a decision of a mandatory nature within the meaning of Article 25 of the Charter. A peacekeeping measure, adopted with the purpose or the intention of imposing an obligation upon the parties to a conflict and other states, gives rise to specific legal obligations to comply with and implement the measure, entailing certain legal consequences for the pre-existing legal order.
