Abstract or Introduction
On 02 November 2003, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1464/02 (2003) authorising under Chapter VII of the UN Charter, the temporary deployment of an interim emergency multinational force in Jonathan Area, in the Democratic Republic of X-land, Africa. Referring to the request of the High Representative for CFSP, General Secretary Xavier Solana, the Political Planning Unit has prepared a background-paper to be submitted for the Council's discussion and decision on the Secretary-General's request.
The following background paper covers the two main questions to be answered:
1. Should the European Union decide to provide a temporary stabilisation force in the Jonathan Area?
2. What are the legal, political and procedural conditions to take the relevant decision on the launching of the European Union military operation in the Democratic Republic of X-land?
The European Union is a newcomer in the business of military and peace support operations. However, it is true that its member states have long been involved in almost any sort of any - Article 5 (NATO/WEU) or Chapter VI-VII (UNO) mission in the past, and they are still today. Yet they have normally done so under other flags than the EU's proper.
