Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the United Nations Transitional Administration for Eastern Slavonia, Baranja and Western Sirmium (UNTAES) and the UN Police Support Group (UNPSG), two peacekeeping missions created by the UN Security Council in January 1996 and in December 1997, respectively, to monitor the conflict in Eastern Slavonia. After providing an overview of the conflict in Eastern Slavonia, the article describes each mission’s mandate and operations as well as the challenges they faced, particularly the demilitarization of forces in the Republika Srpska Krajina, addressing lawlessness including gang violence and significant outbreaks of public disorder, and reintegrating Eastern Slavonia into Croatia. It also discusses the successes and failures of the two missions.
