Chapter Summary

The United Nations Protected Areas (UNPAs) in Croatia were, despite the name, more of a peace-stabilization than a human rights concept. This chapter looks at the concept, protection efforts on the ground, and the limitations of the operation. All members of the peace-keeping operation would be under the operational command of the UN Secretary-General. The chapter outlines the concept of protection, and how did it operate in practice? It presents a few illustrative cases to show how it fared on the ground. Human rights protection can be put into the categories of preventive protection, mitigatory and curative protection, and remedial and compensatory protection. To the extent that UN personnel investigated reports of war crimes and crimes against humanity, they contributed to remedial protection. Their task was to submit the evidence to the war crimes investigators— which they did in some instances.
