The Use of Force by the United Nations

Since its creation the United Nations have decided, led or authorized
military operations to maintain peace, to restore peace, or for humanitarian
reasons. At first simple actions of interposition, these operations
have become more constraining, in particular since the end of the Cold
War, to the point of representing actions that aim to impose peace. But
the material, judicial, and human means given to the Organization by
the member states have not always been equal to its needs. Consequently,
the efficiency of its interventions has declined and it has been
the target of sometimes harsh criticism. This has, in turn, led the Security
Council to subcontract these actions to the states that were willing
to undertake them, in particular for humanitarian aims. However,
several recent military interventions have been deployed without the
consent of the United Nations. A general reappraisal of the UN’s
intervention capacity has become necessary but it depends on the political
will of the member states.
