Abstract

This articles draws lessons on how the United Nations Security Council ought manage conflict and other threats to international peace and security from its long experience with Iraq. It suggests that the Security Council oscillated between a 'politico-military' and a 'legal-regulatory' approach to Iraq, without always fully appreciating the managerial and accountability complexities that flow from these two very different approaches.
