Manual of the International Law in Peace Operations

The primary role of the Senior Academic Advisors is to coordinate all academic activities and to ensure the quality and timely completion of the research and the written outputs. The Project Management Team (PMT) will administer the project, being the main organ responsible for the financial and overall management of the project.

The research itself will be carried out by a Group of Experts consisting of subject-matter experts drawn from academia and international practice, working under the direction of the Senior Academic Advisors. The Group of Experts includes an observer from the ICRC, the African Union, the UN DPKO, and Office of Legal Affairs and the NATO Office of Legal Affairs.

The work of the Group of Experts is supplemented by an Advisory Board with extensive experience in peace operations. The Advisory Board provides ‘reality checks’ and offers its expert advice throughout the project, in particular with regard to the identification of best practices.
