The Involvement of UN in Palestine and the Possibility of a Global Protection Force


  • Kainat Kamal



The United Nations peacekeeping missions are mandated to help nations torn by conflict and create conditions for sustainable peace. These peacekeeping operations not only hold legitimacy under the international law but also possess the ability to deploy troops to advance multidimensional domains. Peacekeeping operations are called upon to maintain peace and security, promote human rights, assist in restoring the rule of law, and help conflict-prone areas create conditions for sustainable peace (United Nations, n.d.-a). These missions are formed and mandated according to individual cases. The evolution of the global security environment and the developing situations in conflict-ridden areas require these missions to accordingly transform from ‘traditional’ to ‘robust’ to ‘hybrid’ (e.g., Ishaque, 2021). So why is it that no such model can be seen in restoring peace and protecting the Palestinian civilians in one of the most protracted and deadliest conflicts in history?
