Judicial Affairs Officers Handbook
The Handbook for Judicial Affairs Officers in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations is a comprehensive and user-friendly reference guide, designed to serve as a resource for experienced judicial affairs staff, as well as an introduction for new staff and those working alongside justice components in the field. It contains substantive yet practical information on the core functions, areas of intervention and principles that govern the work undertaken by DPKO in strengthening the justice sector in host countries of peace operations. With three distinct sections on background knowledge and skills, functions and substantive areas, it elaborates on a broad range of issues to guide and support the work of judicial affairs personnel prior to, and during, deployment in the field. It is based on the DPKO/DFS Policy on Justice Components in United Nations Peace Operations (2009) and the Rule of Law Training Programme for Judicial Affairs Officers in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, instructed bi-annually since 2010.
