Chapter Summary

The UN peace operations in the former Yugoslavia saw courageous efforts for human rights monitoring on the part of the peacemakers, the peacekeepers, the UN Special Rapporteur, the Office of UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. This chapter presents some highlights of these efforts. The European Community Monitoring Mission (ECMM) operated in the former Yugoslavia from 1991 onwards on the basis of the Brioni Agreement signed on the 7th July, 1991 in follow up to a decision taken in Prague within the framework of the CSCE as it was then. The ICRC, for the most part, kept publicly to a 'humanitarian' posture. However, it also performed a monitoring and fact-finding role.
