Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Protection Force in Croatia (UNPROFOR I), a peacekeeping mission created by the UN Security Council in February 1992 and deployed to monitor the UN Protected areas (UNPAs) of Eastern Slavonia, Western Slavonia, and the Krajina that had been taken by the Croat Serbs in the 1991 war. It also deals with the United Nations Confidence Restoration Operation (UNCRO), established in March 1995 to replace the UNPROFOR. After providing an overview of the Yugoslav wars, the chapter outlines UNPROFOR’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations, as well as the lessons that can be learned from its experience.

Keywords: UNCRO, peacekeeping mission, UN Security Council, UNPROFOR I, UN Protected areas, Croatia, wars, former Yugoslavia
