    This paper presents some key findings w.r.t. the Radio Resource Management (RRM) in wireless Backhaul (BH) of mmWave networks. First, the envisioned design of mmWave backhaul architecture is outlined highlighting the most important newly needed functional blocks and in what they differ from a non-mmWave architectures. Next, the challenges and functionality of RRM techniques are discussed, focusing on Routing and Link scheduling algorithms in such BH architecture. Furthermore different possible interactions between RRM functions are explored. Finally, preliminary analytical and experimental study on the performance of different link scheduling and routing functions for mmWave backhauling are provided, highlighting in particular the impact of traffic load and dynamic route selection on BH End to End delay.
