The first issue is whether the clear-cut distinction between jus ad bellum and ius in bello is applicable to International Military Missions (IMMs). The applicability of rules other than rules of International Humanitarian Law (IHL) is considered in the context of the different tasks that IMMs have to perform. Some examples are considered regarding the applicability of different legal regimes and the possible relevance of other types of rules, which may be more suitable for this kind of military operation, as they include also police components and civilian personnel. Finally, the increasing influence of the so-called responsibility to protect principle and its possible implications in the conduct of international peace operations will be addressed.
