The course first considers those strategic and international issues that define UN peacekeeping, including the relationships that exist between the UN, its Member States, and other organisations. It then considers how UN peacekeeping missions are authorised, launched, and supported by the international community and Members States. The course also looks at how Field Missions are structured and organised, and finally at the issues associated with commanding in UN peacekeeping missions at operational, national, and tactical levels, including security, force protection, and sustainment concerns.
