Principles and Guidelines for UN Peacekeeping Operations

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.

Il est basé sur la publication interne du DOMP/DAM intitulée Les Opérations de Maintien de la Paix des Nations Unies: Principes et Orientations, qui est plus largement connu sous son nom informel de Doctrine Capstone. Cette publication est un document exhaustif qui définit et promulgue les doctrines, définitions, procédures et politiques disponibles sur le maintien de la paix. En dix chapitres, elle introduit le concept et l'évolution du maintien de la paix des Nations Unies, elle explique le processus de décision qui précède le déploiement d'une opération de maintien de la paix et ensuite le processus de planification pour mettre en œuvre cette décision. Elle traite également de l'art de la mise en œuvre réussie de mandat et traite de la gestion des opérations de maintien de la paix, de comment les opérations sont prises en charge et soutenues, et de comment elles sont bouclées à leurs fins.
