Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the United Nations Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT I + II), a peacekeeping mission deployed by the UN Security Council in September 2007 to address some of the spillover effects of the war in Darfur, Sudan. MINURCAT was initially protected by a smaller European force, EUFOR, to carry out its mandate to protect civilians in danger, including refugees and displaced persons, and facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid in Chad. After providing an overview of the crisis in Chad, the chapter outlines MINURCAT’s mandate and evaluates its operational achievements and limitations, as well as the important lessons that can be learned from its experience.

Keywords: peacekeeping, UN Security Council, refugees, humanitarian aid, Chad, non-government organizations, Darfur crisis, European Union
