The UN Security Council is the main organ of the UN entrusted with the responsibility for the maintenance or restoration of peace. It is this process of delegation of military enforcement powers by the Council which is the focus of the book. Specifically, the legal framework which governs the process of delegation by the Council of its Chapter VII powers is examined, along with the practice relating to the exercise of these powers by each of the delegates concerned, and the policy issues relating to such delegations.

It has helped the UN Security Council develop the new 'smart sanctions' .

It has helped the UN Security Council develop the new 'smart sanctions', particularly those targeting regimes with basic human rights implications. Nevertheless, through the 1990s the United Nations itself had become involved in operations in Kosovo that looked distinctly like military occupation. Even the most liberal reading of the instruments governing occupation law, however, finds it hard to reconcile this law with military intervention and post-conflict occupation premised on regime change. This article first surveys the law of military occupation before briefly examining the role of the UN Security Council in post-conflict administration.

The Security Council may decide what measures not involving the use of armed force are to be employed to give effect to its decisions, and it may call upon the Members of the United Nations to apply such measures. These may include complete or partial interruption of economic relations and of rail, sea, air, postal, telegraphic, radio, and other means of communication, and the severance of diplomatic relations

Dr. Danesh Sarooshi has extensively explored the options for the use of force, as detailed in Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.

Chapter VII powers are delegated by the UN Security Council a fifteen member body with five permanent and ten rotating members. These powers permit the use of force in certain circumstances; for example, by peacekeeping troops in a UN mission. With the difficulties recently experienced in parts of the world, Chapter VII powers need to be sometimes conferred on the UN mission when undertaking peacekeeping or peace-building operations, in order to protect members of the mission and innocent victims.

Dr. Sarooshi writes with extensive knowledge on this subject; his work in this book is derived from a thesis. Written from a legal perspective and using case study examples in classical legal writing style, he looks at delegation of powers from the UN Security Council to the UN Secretary-General, other UN bodies, member states and in the context of regional situations.

The book is well writeen however, could be heavy going for some readers; very useful for students of international law,security studies and international relations. The book uses real examples and looks at various past examples such as Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq, Kuwait and Korea.

In summary, a well written and researched book, rich in examples and reference material for the serious student. The book may be a bit heavy going for some readers; it gives a broad view of the UN Security Council's powers and when Chapter VII powers can be invoked and delegated. Well done, Dr. Sarooshi!

Dr. Sarooshi's book is a well-written, authoritative, and scholarly discussion of the use of force by the United Nations--a topic of increasing relevance in today's world.
Sarooshi, professor of international law at University College London, discusses how the UN Security Council's powers to use force can be delegated to other entities or organs of the UN. He describes and analyzes the general legal framework governing the process of a delegation by the UN Security Council of its Chapter VII Powers. The book covers all relevant aspects of the delegation of force by the UN, including the competence of the Security Council to delegate its Chapter VII Powers to various entities, and limitations on this competence. The book discusses (ch. 4) responsibility for UN-authorized military action, as well as various justifications (ch. 5) for delegating force, such as: to counter a use of force by a state or entities within a state; to carry out a naval interdiction; to achieve humanitarian objectives; or to ensure implementation by parties of an agreement which the Council has deemed is necessary for the maintainance or restoration of peace. Various useful real-world cases are discussed, such as the Iraqi "No-Fly Zone".
Sarooshi examines various types of delegation, including delegation to the Secretary-General, to other subsidiary UN organs, and to UN member states. Of particular interest, in view of today's headlines, is the discussion (in Chapter 6) of the Security Council's delegation of enforcement powers to "Regional Arrangements", including NATO.
Sarooshi's comprehensive and authoritative monograph is an important contribution to the on-going development of international law pertaining to the use of force by the UN. This book will play an important role in the future develoment of the legal framework governing collective action by the United Nations.
