Abstract

The Netherlands is once again making a military contribution to a UN peacekeeping operation, namely the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE). The Dutch government takes the decision to do so, parliament is 'only' informed. The Sebrenica affair and the 'report of the temporary decision-making committee on deployments' (the Bakker report) have shown that (international) decision-making regarding peace operations is not transparent and that the security risks are increasing. With the constitutional amendment of the 'provisions on the defense', the constitution fails to place constitutional and political responsibility with parliament. Dutchbat is in a drip from the rain.
