Human Rights and Peacekeeping

This course examines the cross-cutting principles and obligations concerning human rights within the specific context of armed conflicts and United Nations peace operations. Human rights is a dimension that transcends all phases and employs all components of a peace operation, leading to often complex implementation planning and coordination, which this course traces and delineates. The course begins by reviewing the landmark documents and instruments indispensible to the protection of human rights in theory, before demonstrating how such protection is enforced and performed on the ground. It discusses the various types of human rights violations, identifies the groups of people especially at risk, and conducts a thorough analysis on the concept of protection – the core of human rights work in peace operations. The course contains important sections on human rights partners – a group that includes such external actors as NGOs and international businesses – and on the process of accountability, which, as the course demonstrates, is essential in peace operations if an established peace is to be long-lasting and sustainable. 10 Lessons.

Patrick Marega Castellan is a human rights consultant who has served in various capacities – including specialist, adviser, and trainer – for United Nations missions in Haiti, Darfur, Angola, and Liberia.

"It is a main concern for a police officer or military staff to be aware of human Rights concept. Really, being staff of one of those two fields needs to have a kbnowledge on Human Rights. In other words you can not enforce what you personally do'nt know. This course has been of a good use not only in my carrier as a police officer but also in my daily life as a human being. "
