Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter analyzes the concept of responsibility to protect. The responsibility to protect has three dimensions: a commitment to prevention; a commitment to respond to serious human rights violations and a commitment to reconstruction. Application of the responsibility to protect should be when there is a serious human rights violations with numerous killings or extensive ethnic cleansing. These incidents should be investigated by the UN Security Council at a special rail, and the permanent Security Council members were encouraged not to make use of their right of veto. The responsibility to protect the States for what happened in their jurisdictions puts this concept into the nearby traditional human rights. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: human rights; responsibility to protect; UN Security Council
