Sharing Sovereignty: peacebuilding and the UN's joint ventures in Timor-Leste and Cambodia

- , London, UK

International actors engaged in peacebuilding efforts often share responsibility for key sovereign functions when national governments cannot do so effectively. That has been the case in Timor-Leste, where after the security crisis of 2006, United Nations police shared duties with Timorese counterparts for core policing functions. This practice of “sharing sovereignty” is also apparent in Cambodia, where UN-appointed judges and lawyers partner with Cambodian personnel in a hybrid court to try crimes of the Khmer Rouge regime.
