Military forces are increasingly being deployed into hostile environments to conduct humanitarian and peace-keeping operations, and state practice has demonstrated that some aspects of international law which evolved to regulate the conduct of hostilities between states has failed to provide the maximum protection available to protect it’s peace-keepers and deter serious violations of international humanitarian law. Jus Paciarii is a richly documented, cutting edge chronicle of three emergent international law paradigms that:
1. afford peace-keepers greater legal protection,
2. impose a legal obligation on all states to search for and arrest war criminals, and
3. grant the United Nations, states, and peace-keepers a greater range of legal authority to use force for humanitarian interventions.
To prove the existence of these emergent paradigms, Professor Sharp details the evolution of United Nations peace operations, reviews existing international law protections for all military forces serving under the authority of the United Nations, and examines the decade of state practice which has most changed the international community’s attitude toward military forces who serve as its peace-keepers. At each turn, Sharp superbly summarizes his work in a series of tables and figures, and provides a Draft Protocol III to the four Geneva Conventions of 1949 which protects all personnel – civilians and military, noncombatants and combatants – who serve under the authority of the United Nations. This text is exceptionally well-suited as a reference for government officials, military operators, students, and others who are interested in the maintenance of international peace and security.

Enforcement of law is a tenet that is central to international peace and security, the rule of law, and democratic governance. The international community has embraced the principles that peace-keepers should be protected, that war criminals should be prosecuted, and that innocent people should not suffer at the hands of cruel tyrants – it is time to fully embrace the legal paradigms that embody and enable those principles. This text is a modest effort intended to spark the debate of how international law is evolving to better protect those who serve the international community in uniform and all the peoples of the world.About the Author:
