Abstract

The Responsibility to Rebuild is an integral component of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P), a concept developed, presented and promoted by the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS). 2 The Commission’s report is built around three core responsibilities:

A. The responsibility to prevent: to address both the root causes and direct causes of internal conflict and other man-made crises putting populations at risk; B. The responsibility to react: to respond to situations of compelling human need with appropriate measures, which may include coercive measures like sanctions and international prosecution, and in extreme cases military intervention; and C. The responsibility to rebuild: to provide, particularly after a military intervention, full assistance with recovery, reconstruction and reconciliation, addressing the causes of the harm the intervention was designed to halt or avert. 3
