Abstract: In this contribution, I will identify the main issues relevant for the application of Human Rights Law to international organisations involved in peace operations from a European perspective. While the focus will be on the European Union (EU), I will also cover to some extent a wider European perspective (I). I will examine the question of the extraterritorial scope of application of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), including extraterritorial derogations (II) and subsequently the relationship between International Humanitarian Law (IHL)
and Human Rights Law (III). This is followed by an overview of how these issues have been addressed in the framework of EU crisis management operations (IV). In the final section, I will briefly point out some EU specificities in relation to responsibility (V).
