United Nations Peacekeeping Missions Military FHQ Support Unit manual
This first edition of the United Nations Military Force Headquarters Support Unit Manual provides field commanders and their staff a guide for planning and conducting Force Headquarters Support Unit operations in support of UN peacekeeping Missions.Troop Contributing Countries, UN Headquarters and Mission staff will find this Manual an essential reference as they plan for, generate and employ Force Headquarters Support Units for UN Missions. The intent of this Manual is not to override the national military doctrine of individual Member States or TCCs, nor impose requirements on national training, operations or structures. This Manual does not prescribe any military tactics, techniques and procedures, nor is it the intent of this Manual to serve as an instrument for unit selection. Indeed, unit structures will be adapted, ultimately, in accordance with specific Mission requirements and any Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) negotiated between the UN and TCC. Instead, this Manual serves as a complement to existing or emerging TCCs’ military doctrine, and preparation for the enhanced performance achieved through interoperability with other TCCs participating in the peacekeeping operation. This Manual is primarily written at the operational level. It is based on UN guidance reflecting lessons learned, feedback from field Missions and input from peacekeeping practitioners familiar with UN Force Headquarters Support Units.
