Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the component of legitimation as a contributing factor for authority in UN naval peace operations, the background to and context within which the Law of the Sea Convention (LOSC), use of force, and the UN Charter must interact. The centrality of this relationship for defining legitimation and assessing authority in UN naval peace operations resides in the fact that such operations take place in a sphere of activity (the oceans, seas and coasts) over which specific rules relating to legitimation already exist, but where the conduct itself is sanctioned by reference to the UN Charter Chapter VII. The chapter then outlines the nature of the UN Charter's few references to the sea as a subject in international affairs generally, noting the paucity of considered or consistent UNSC precedent with respect to UN naval peace operations.
