In the corporate world, repatriation usually refers to the conversion of offshore capital into the currency of the country where a company is headquartered. Cultural or artistic repatriation is the return of cultural property or works of art to their country of origin (usually with regard to ancient art) or (for the ransacked material) of their former owners (or heirs). While repatriation necessarily brings a person to their region of origin or nationality, a return may include return to the point of departure. This could be done in a third country, including a transit country, which is a country through which the person has transited to the destination country. A return could also take place within a country`s territorial borders, as in the case of the return of internally displaced persons and demobilized combatants. The distinction between repatriation and return, voluntary or not, is not always clear.  In March 1992, UNTAC took over UNAMIC, which was created immediately after the signing of the Paris Agreement in October 1991. Up to 15,547 soldiers, 893 military observers and 3,500 civilian police officers were deployed. In addition, up to 1,149 international civilian forces, 465 UN volunteers and 4830 local staff have been deployed. During the Cambodian elections, 50,000 Cambodians served as election officials.
The UNTAC operation contained a number of elements, both civilian and military. With regard to electoral activities, UNTAC has launched an information and training programme for citizens aimed at disseminating information on the importance of democratic elections and building confidence in the process. In particular, UN volunteers served as district monitors and were tasked with training Cambodian staff for election observers. In the area of human rights, UNTAC`s mission was to support the creation of a social, political and military climate in which human rights will be protected. In particular, the human rights component of UNTAC was tasked with encouraging the SNC to comply with existing human rights legislation and to review institutional provisions in light of international human rights provisions. The Agency has also conducted an extensive public information campaign on human rights and, where possible, investigating complaints of human rights violations. The objective of the military component of UNTAC was to ensure stability and contribute to confidence-building measures.
