The cold war era prevented the UN Security Council (SC) from adopting measures not involving the use of armed force, provided for in Article 41 of the UN Charter, for events deemed by the SC to be a threat to the peace, a breach of the peace, or from an act of aggression. However, the end of the cold enabled the SC to take some of the measures short of force envisaged in Article 41. This chapter discusses measures short of armed force; peacekeeping operations; resort to force by States upon authorization of the UN; the use of force by regional and other organizations, upon authorization of the SC; the authorization to use force given by the General Assembly; and the old and the new law on force and collective security contrasted.
