Abstract
The role of the United Nations has significantly expanded since the 1990s with respect to its involvement in post-conflict societies. It has shifted from general supervision to direct governance, assuming a wide range of state-like tasks. Its two undertakings in Kosova/o and East Timor represent the most comprehensive and yet most challenging missions the UN has ever mounted. In this regard, a range of questions has been raised related to the UN’s practical capability for performing this role, as well as the availability of feasible alternatives to the United Nations to take appropriate responsibility for its actions and decisions and to become more accountable to the people it governs. The aim of this thesis is to explore the functioning of the UN’s endeavour in practice, with a particular focus on the United Nations Interim Administration in Kosova/o (UNMIK). It primary focus is on exploring the capacity of UNMIK, as a surrogate state, to respect, protect and fulfil human rights. What Kosovars learned from UNMIK, and what UNMIK learned from Kosovars, will serve as concrete suggestions as to how the deficiencies that occurred during the UNMIK administration could be mitigated in present and future missions.
