Rights to territory: the case of the United Nations : the matters of disposition, administration an possession
After the Second World War the United Nations (UN)/l’Organisation des Nations Unies (ONU) was created and given such a position that the powers once held by the “Great Powers” to a certain extent now have been channeled through the UN. Consequently, considering the main objective of the UN, that is to preserve international peace and security or to restore such conditions, the UN has engaged itself in almost countless missions to that end. In many cases the use of disposition, administration and possession of territory on the part of the UN has taken place, including state-building. This Study focuses on the actions by the UN concerning the three mentioned aspects, including a discussion on a number of legal issues pertaining to territory.
