Sensors for Peace: Applications, Systems and Legal Requirements for Monitoring in Peace Operations
The end of the Cold War has seen an important increase in the range & scope of United Nations peace operations. Some of these operations have encountered difficulty in fulfilling their tasks. One way proposed to alleviate this problem is through the use of technical means such as unattended ground-sensor systems which allow for better monitoring of peace agreements. Sensors For Peace, examines the potential for the use of unattended ground-sensor systems in United Nations peace missions from operational, conceptual & juridical perspectives. Overall this potential is found to be both promising & realistic.
