Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the concept of security in a very concrete manner. The examples illustrate that there is an inherent tension between the security of the civilian population and the security of military personnel. The chapter examines to what extent demands for security of the civilian population result in legal obligations to the potential detriment of the security of international military personnel. It describes the general framework under international humanitarian law for the removal and destruction of unexploded ordnances, and the applicability of this regime in international peace operations. The chapter also addresses briefly the legality of the use of these weapons. It then describes human rights law, and inquires whether this regime provides any independent, relevant legal obligations in peace operations, and how these relate to the provisions of international humanitarian law.

Keywords: human rights law; international humanitarian law; international military personnel; international peace operations
