ABSTRACT
In March 2013, the United Nations (UN) Security Council (UNSC) has authorized the deployment of a brigade-level combat unit in support of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), giving it explicit combat tasks. This has been unexpected, since it goes beyond the traditional concepts of peacekeeping and peace-enforcement and the defensive posture that have so far characterized the deployment of multinational forces under direct command of the United Nations in areas of crisis.
