Fundamentos Jurídicos y Sociales de las Operaciones de Paz en España


  • Puertas Cristóbal, Esther
  • Fernández Alles, José Joaquín


In Spain, one of the most innovative content of the IX Legislature has been the exercise of parliamentary control by the Congress of Deputies on Peace and Reconstruction Operations performed abroad by the Armed Forces, who plays a key role in promoting values for peace, humanitarian aid and human rights. This is a decisive advance in the process of 'parliamentarisation' security policy and the consideration of the Armed Forces as an instrument of government in service to human rights, development cooperation and peace. In exercising this function, Spain has justified the social dimension of the state in eight Military and Humanitarian Operations managed under the authorization of the Congress of Deputies from 2008 to 2010.
