This article examines the conditions under which wrongful conduct during a peacekeeping or a United Nations authorised operation can be attributed to the United Nations or to other international organisations as well as the conditions under which such conduct can be attributed to multiple entities giving rise to their responsibility. Finally, the article considers the role of consent, self-defence and necessity as circumstances precluding the wrongfulness of such conduct in the context of such operations.
