Chapter Summary

Peace-building in the law enforcement sector, even if conducted on the basis of an unequivocal mandate, may infringe the rights of third parties and inflict damage upon them. This chapter inquires into mechanisms of accountability for rights infringed and damage occurred in the course of the European Union's peace-building activities and the availability of remedies to third countries and their nationals. This chapter focuses on "accountability in the interest of the rule of law" or legal accountability in the context of support to the police and the judiciary in a peace-building environment. It examines the main questions arising for the protection of third party rights on both sides of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP)/non-CFSP boundary line, followed by an analysis of the jurisdiction of the courts of the European Union and its member states, against the backdrop of the immunity of the European Union and its personnel.

Keywords: Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP); European Union's peace-building activities; judiciary; police
