An introduction to the aims of The ‘Legal Pluriverse’ Surrounding Multinational Military Operations, defining the key terms to be used within the book, particularly ‘pluriverse’, a term which is used to describe the multiplicity of rules that apply to and regulate contemporary multinational missions and the diversity of actors involved. This chapter briefly outlines the five main parts of the book and the legal problems that are dealt with by the contributing authors in their individual chapters, providing the necessary background for the book as a whole to take stock of this legal pluriverse and help to make sense of it in order to gradually move towards a more coherent regime.

Keywords:   multinational military operations, peace enforcement, peacekeeping, laws of armed conflict, United Nations, coalition warfare, international human rights, status-of-forces agreements, state responsibility
