Chapter Summary

Since the late 90s, a significant change in the practice of the Security Council (Council) has reinforced the humanitarian capital introduction in peacekeeping. Each year, the Council adopted resolutions on the theme of the protection of civilians in armed conflicts in order to improve the physical and legal protection of civilians in hostilities. There are three broad types of resolutions on this theme: those title which specify "the protection of civilians in armed conflict", those called "women, peace and international security" and those called "children in armed conflicts ". To simplify the analysis, this chapter refers to the resolutions on the protection of civilians in armed conflict as a generic term for these three types of resolutions. This chapter aims to analyze the thematic resolutions on the protection of civilians in armed conflict and also illustrate the intertwining of humanitarian (broadly defined) and peacekeeping. The original text of this chapter is in German.
