The Handbook on United Nations Multidimensional Peacekeeping Operations provides some information about how Rules of Engagement are prepared.

"The use of force of any kind by a member of a peacekeeping contingent is defined by the rules of engagement (ROE). The ROE are tailored to the specific mandate of the mission and the situation on the ground." p.140 of the Handbook.

The Rules for individual missions are not published in publicly available documents.
