Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Observer Mission in Angola (MONUA), a peacekeeping mission formed by the UN Security Council in June 1997 to support the Government of Unity and National Reconciliation (GURN) in Angola and to finalize the peace process between the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) regime and the Union for the Total Independence of Angola (UNITA). MONUA was in effect the replacement operation for the third UN Verification Mission in Angola (UNAVEM III). After providing an overview of the conflict in Angola, the article outlines MONUA’s mandate, and its operations before its withdrawal after its evident failure to make any significant impact on the situation.
