Do you only have DSRSGs when there is an integrated mission?

Yes, DSRSG positions exist only in special political missions or peacekeeping operations. There are different types of DSRSG positions, including for instance DSRSG-Political, DSRSG-Rule of Law and DSRSG/RC/HC. The number and type of such position in any given mission depends on the context and mandate of the mission.

DSRSG/RC/HCs (“triple hats”) only exist in the context of integrated missions (those are called “integrated” missions as development and humanitarian aspects of the UN presence are “integrated” into the peacekeeping or peace-making operation).
