Where can I find more information about UN peacekeeping Rules of Engagement (ROE)?
Last Updated: Feb 13, 2019     Views: 23270

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 on United Nations Multidimensional Peacekeeping Operations)

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

Further information related to the policy, organization and guidelines for UN peacekeeping missions can be found in the links below.
