Chapter Summary

This chapter explores the relationship between the concept of "Responsibility to Protect", international humanitarian law and international criminal justice based on the reflections from the Libyan war 2011. The concept of "Responsibility to Protect" takes up the idea from Geneva Conventions of 1949 and extends it in extreme cases even to the ius ad bellum aspects in the form of a multilateral out bellum jus-tum.The distinction between unilateral and collective action is of particular importance in military interventions. The involvement of international criminal justice in the processing of the Libyan atrocities in spring 2011 is highly commendable. Morever, military operations to protect people not with conventional military action aimed at the defeat of a State, are comparable to humanitarian interventions may even strict war legal standards and finds application in other armed conflicts. The original text of the chapter is in German.
