The Decade of UNSCOM

  • Graham S. Pearson
Part of the Global Issues Series book series (GLOISS)

Abstract

This chapter starts with the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq on 2 August 1990 which led to a coalition facing Iraq and using ‘all necessary means’ in accordance with SCR 678 (1990) first to wage the air war and then the ground war which was followed by the cease-fire SCR 687 (1991) adopted on 3 April 1991. It then examines the work of the United Nations Special Commission (UNSCOM) on Iraq established by SCR 687 (1991) during the decade from 1991 to 2000. Unsurprisingly, the chapter draws from my earlier book,1 The UNSCOM Saga, which examined UNSCOM in some detail.
