Chapter Summary

The change of the political climate in the post-Cold War era has generated a legitimate and plausible concern that the Security Council may remain unfettered in the application of Chapter VII powers if it remains beyond any sort of check and balance mechanism. As far as the adoption of peacekeeping measures is concerned, the role that the General Assembly can play is limited, owing partly to the limitations imposed upon it under the Charter in its relationship with the Security Council. The conventional view is that the supremacy of the rule of law over the exercise of discretionary power is best maintained through judicial control. Every peacekeeping measure must be adopted and implemented within the jurisdiction of the authorising organ in conformity with the general and specific requirements under the UN Charter.
