Although the UN Charter does not specifically mention peacekeeping, Chapters VI and VII of the UN Charter contain the legal basis for it. The Security Council does not have to refer to a specific Chapter of the UN Charter when authorizing a UN peacekeeping operation. In fact, the Security Council has never named Chapter VI in any such resolution.

The Security Council recently started referring to Chapter VII of the UN Charter in some resolutions authorizing UN peacekeeping operations. This practice signals the Security Council’s political commitment and serves to remind UN Member States and parties to a conflict that such resolutions are binding.
