Summary This book contains a detailed study of the applicable international law relevant to peace operations in the context of collapsed states, the establishment of safe havens or in an enforcement role in general. It discusses the interaction and legal relationship of non government organisations, the military, UN agencies and the warring parties under international law and in practice. The book also deals with issues concerning implication of contemporary peace operations for military forces in terms of force structure, operating procedures and training. The book focuses on the critical issues of the interim administration of law and order in complex operations, and the reconstruction of a local capability in this regrad. Many contemporary operational challenges are analysed: Bosnia, the Middle East and, in particular, a detailed study of Somalia based on the author's inside knowledge, experience and access to information acquired on the ground in Somalia
