Show Summary Details


This chapter works out the implications of the principles of complementarity and subsidiarity in the area of peace operations conducted by the UN and regional organizations. The principal peace operations conducted by the UN, ECOWAS, AU, NATO, and EU are examined in their legal framework, and doctrinal controversies surrounding these issues are also addressed. Chapter 7 then proceeds to examine such structural factors as mandate of peace operations, consent by states, command and control, and the use of force. The analysis of notions pertaining to command and control over peace operations, and their practical implications, paves the way for examining the issues of responsibility later in Chapter 8.

Keywords: force; subsidiarity; complementarity; peace operations; consent; command and control; mandate; legal framework
