Respect and compliance with the rule of law in peacekeeping operations must start before implementation on the ground at the time the mission is authorized and planned. It is also important that countries taking part in peacekeeping missions possess a good record of respecting the Rule of Law domestically. Professor Sampford warns that all stakeholders involved in peacekeeping missions must be prepared to subject themselves to the rule of law, otherwise the chances of the rule of law emerging in the communities that are the subject and intended beneficiaries of peacekeeping missions is remote.Return to home pageAccess the complete list working papers
