UN peacekeeping and the rule of law in Côte d'Ivoire


In 2002, following the outbreak of civil war in Côte d'Ivoire, the United Nations (UN) established the United Nations Operation in Côte d'Ivoire (UNOCI). Since the end of the Cold War, UN peacekeeping operations have become increasingly involved with state and institution-building in their target countries. Under the umbrella of state-building is the subgroup of rule of law engagement, or the interaction with rule of law institutions, including the police/gendarmerie, the judiciary, and corrections. Unfortunately, literature on peacekeeping often fails to disaggregate the UN's activities that engage with rule of law institutions. Thus, using Secretary-General reports on UNOCI, this investigation disaggregates rule of law activities and maps the trends of UNOCI's engagement with the rule in Côte d'Ivoire.
