Principles and Guidelines for UN Peacekeeping Operations

Below are the language versions available for study:

This course has been developed in consultation with the Peacekeeping Best Practices Section of the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations’ Policy, Evaluation and Training Division. It is based on the internal DPKO/DFS publication entitled United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Principles and Guidelines, which is more widely known under its informal name Capstone Doctrine. This publication is a comprehensive document that defines and promulgates available peacekeeping doctrine, definitions, procedures, and policy. In ten chapters, it introduces the concept and evolution of UN Peacekeeping, explains the decision process that precedes the deployment of a peacekeeping operation, and then the planning process to implement that decision. It also discusses the art of successful mandate implementation and addresses the management of peacekeeping operations, how operations are supported and sustained, and how they are concluded at their termination. The Institute course Principles and Guidelines is designed to teach this DPKO doctrine to all UN personnel serving in the field and at Headquarters, as well as to those who are new to UN peacekeeping. Ten chapters.

"THE COURSE IS LOGICALLY SET THUS EASY TO UNDERSTAND. HOWEVER, WHAT IS NOT CLEAR IS HOW CONSENT FROM THE WARRING PARTIES REQUIRED FOR PEACEKEEPING IS SUSTAINED IN SITUATIONS WHERE THE ORIGINAL PARTIES TO A CONFLICT HAVE TRANFORMED, CHANGED OR NONEXISTING. INCASE WHERE NEW ACTORS EMERGE, DOES UN OBTAIN NEW CONSENT? INCASE ONE OF THE CONSENT PARTIES IS THE GOVT. AND IT HAS CHANGED/ REPLACED, IS CONSENT TRANSFERED?"

" Learning is a journey that never ends.... in this there is nothing about it to miss because it gives you an insight into the marrow of the functioning of the United Nations and Non-United Nations bodies. i learned in this many ways by which conflicts at any level could be resolved without any use of force. finally from it i came to understand that even at hostile moments and situations, dialogue remains the most vital methodology applied to solve problems because it has attached strings of understanding and taking into consideration values and well being of man and the environment....
