Ensuring and Enforcing Human Security: The Practice of International Peace Missions
  • Nederlands
  • 144

The progressive development of international peace operations calls for continuous legal and policy review.

Ulf Häußler succeeds in assessing recent changes in peace missions and their underlying legal framework. He describes the requirements for comprehensive mandates and also looks into the limits of authority, as defined in principles and rules of human rights and international humanitarian law. Stressing the responsibility of peacekeepers and their Sending States to ensure compliance with obligations established in a preceding peace settlement, this book systematically evaluates relevant military operations and decision processes. It does not shy away from critical issues, such as operational detentions, riot control and intelligence missions.

As issues of international accountability are clearly getting more importance for the success of peace operations, the deliberations and findings presented in this book deserve close attention within a wider community of experts.
