Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the scope of responsibility to protect in natural diasters. The totally inadequate response of the Security Council on the genocide in Rwanda led to consternation among politicians and scientists who had originally expected at the end of the East-West conflict. The concept of responsibility to protect is very broad and provides a completely new understanding of sovereignty. In the classical international law only intergovernmental conflict as a threat to peace and aggression by one state against another was considered trespassing. The use of the military had tragic consequences for the more humanitarian aid after the acute crisis. The complex emergency situation in Haiti in 2010 had a dimension that they exceeded the capacity of the local government. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: East-West conflict; responsibility to protect; Haiti; natural diasters
