Once the decision has been made to deploy a UN peacekeeping mission, and once the planning process is completed, it is time to begin the process of deploying a mission. The life-cycle of a peacekeeping mission can be thought of as having three broad and overlapping phases -- mission start-up, mandate implementation, and then transition to mission hand-over and withdrawal. The mission start-up phase itself can have several overlapping stages: pre-deployment, rapid deployment, mission headquarters start-up, and functional component and field office start-up. In this chapter 6, the three phases of deployment will be introduced, and then each of the four phases of start-up will be briefly discussed.
