Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Advance Mission in Cambodia (UNAMIC), a peacekeeping mission deployed by the UN Security Council from October 1991 to March 1992 to prepare the ground for the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC). UNTAC was created to implement key provisions of the Paris Agreements, signed in October 1991 to facilitate the transition towards peace, stability, and democracy in Cambodia after two decades of civil war. After providing an overview of the civil war in Cambodia, the chapter outlines UNAMIC’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations.
