Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), a peacekeeping mission mandated by the UN Security Council in 1951 to observe and monitor the ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan. UNMOGIP replaced the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP), originally established in January 1948 to investigate and mediate in the dispute between the two countries. After providing an overview of the India–Pakistan conflict involving the Kashmir region, the article outlines UNMOGIP’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations.
