Introduction The latest form of peace operations, as deployed in Kosovo and East Timor, do already constitute a mechanism for the promotion and protec- tion of international human rights. The peace operation, particularly through the processes of peace building, constitutes a mechanism which is attempting to rebuild and reconstruct societal institutions, and is doing so with the explicit objective to promote and protect international human rights standards. In respect of existing human rights mechanisms, the peace operation is another step in their development as it directly involves the wide implementation of the standards into a wide national context. What remains to be seen is whether the inherent strength of this mecha- nism will be realised. Currently, as the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) and United Nations Transitional Authority in East Timor (UNTAET) demonstrate, international human rights are part of the fabric of the operations. They also play a very considerable role in the tasks of the operations. What is shown to be one of the determinative factors for the realisation of the strength of this mechanism is the capacity of the United Nations (UN) to cope with the enormous and inherent difficulties of post-conflict situations.
