Chapter Summary

Much of the legal debate over the maintenance of international peace and security has generally been dominated by concerns about collective enforcement measures and unilateral military actions by individual states. The Security Councils preventive posture needs to be reinforced with an affirmative and innovative approach. The traditional principle of non-intervention and the restrictions imposed upon the use of armed force by peacekeeping forces may prevent effective implementation of peacekeeping measures. However, the historical account of peacekeeping measures that the Security Council has undertaken shows that it has been more actively involved in conflict situations, especially those of an intra-state nature.

Keywords: armed force; peacekeeping measures; security council reform
