Some Moral Considerations for Civilian-Peacekeeper Protection Alliances
This essay focuses on a situation in which civilians' self-protection activities raise ethical questions for peacekeepers: civilian self-protection by particular civilian organizations. These may be formal, like NGOs, or informal, like kin-group networks. But what they have in common is that they make clear that peacekeepers' partners in protection will be particular loci of power within civilian society, not "civilians" as an idealized, undifferentiated mass.
