Chapter Summary

This chapter begins by defining 'peace operations', as this is the conceptual envelope within which the issue is cast. It then addresses the general issue of operational utility, describing the operational architecture within which the practice of UN naval peace operations must be viewed, and their authority analysed. This is achieved by briefly outlining those characteristics of naval power that are useful in UN peace operations. Finally, the analysis addresses what are arguably the fundamental functions of naval forces in UN peace operations, and then concludes with a brief discussion of several ancillary tasks that whilst not generally fundamental naval forces are occasionally called upon to perform in the course of UN peace operations.
