Chapter Summary

Chapter VI of the UN Charter, Pacific Settlement of Disputes, and Chapter VII, Action with Respect to Threats to the Peace, Breaches of the Peace, and Acts of Aggression (Charter of the UN; Peace, Peace Concept, Threat to Peace; Peacekeeping), number amongst the key substantive chapters setting out the ways in which the organizations core aim, to maintain international peace and security, is to be translated into reality. In practice, the Security Council has devoted copious attention to disputes referred to it by member states. If the means listed in Chapter VI of the UN Charter to be used in peaceful dispute- settlement are considered systematically in relation to the degree of thirdparty involvement, six categories emerge. The further development of the instruments used by the UN for peaceful dispute settlement should not, however, be viewed in isolation from the reform of other areas of policy relevant to peace.
