After providing an overview of the civil war in Liberia, the chapter outlines UNMIL’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations in terms of the implementation of a disarmament, demobilization, repatriation, and reintegration program; assistance to the national elections scheduled for 2005; and human rights and humanitarian assistance.
