The concept of the responsibility to protect, in sof ar as can be seen as a paradigm shift in international relations, as the importance of national sovereignty has undergone a fundamental change.  The brief overview presented in this chapter shows that acts of torture, depending on the specific context, can be implemented as part of ethnic cleansing or genocide, war crimes or crimes against humanity. The original text of the chapter is in German.
