Journal of International Peacekeeping is devoted to reporting upon and analyzing international peacekeeping with an emphasis upon legal and policy issues, but it is not limited to these issues. Topics include
inter alia peacekeeping, peace, war, conflict resolution, diplomacy, international law, international security, humanitarian relief, humanitarian law, and terrorism. The journal is of scholarly quality but is not narrowly theoretical. It provides the interested public -- diplomats, civil servants, politicians, the military, academics, journalists, and NGO employees -- with an up-to-date source of information on peacekeeping, enabling them to keep abreast of the most important developments in the field. Peacekeeping is treated in a pragmatic light, seen as a form of international military cooperation for the preservation or restoration of international peace and security. Attention is focused not only on UN peacekeeping operations, but other missions as well.
Journal of International Peacekeeping is the continuation of the journal and yearbook
International Peacekeeping, founded in 1994.
Authors are cordially invited to submit articles to the journal editor
International policing is an area of exponential growth for the United Nations and other international organizations such as the European Union. International police officers are tasked with a wide array of responsibilities, including police reform, training, monitoring and executive policing. This raises the question how human rights standards become applicable to international policing. The international human rights law applicable to international policing can be derived from legal sources specifically related to UN and non-UN peace operations and through general human rights law. From a legal perspective, the compliance with international human rights may be regarded as the final test when assessing the success or failure of international police operations.
