Oxford University Press

This chapter tracks the practice of the Security Council in addressing the protection of civilians, presenting an ‘inside story’ of protection-of-civilians diplomacy within the Council. The chapter also considers Council interaction with a number of other stakeholders, including host States and troop-contributing countries, the UN Secretariat, and regional and sub-regional organizations. It draws conclusions about the benefits and limitations of Security Council engagement on protection issues given its composition and function as prescribed by the UN Charter as well as its working methods, highlighting the fundamental importance of political will as well as the role of non-permanent Security Council members.
