Military assistance — Military matters — Peace keeping

This chapter provides an overview of the relevant issues of the UN Model SOFA and the NATO SOFA. Remarks on peace operations mainly focus on those conducted or authorized by the UN. They may, however, become relevant for peace operations conducted by other international organizations as well. Likewise, rules and provisions of the NATO SOFA may offer some food for thought when regulating military cooperation outside the North Atlantic Alliance. Hence, specific requirements notwithstanding, the chapter offers some legal considerations which may be helpful in other cases as well. It addresses these in context, thus explaining similarities and differences on the status of foreign Visiting Forces (jus in praesentia) from both practical experience and theoretical viewpoints.
