This chapter discusses what it means in concrete terms for UN responsibility to have been engaged. It argues that the UN is subject to the normal secondary obligations of cessation of the wrongful act, and of reparation, the forms of which are restitution, compensation, and satisfaction. The chapter first surveys the nature of the obligation of cessation and seeks to distinguish it from the continued duty of performance of the obligation breached, and from the secondary obligation of reparation through restitution. It then goes on to argue that restitution, in particular ‘juridical restitution’ and satisfaction are important forms of reparation as far as UN responsibility for Security Council action is concerned: these forms of reparation obligate that the offending normative act be withdrawn and ensure that no precedent will be established, respectively.

Keywords:   international responsibility, secondary obligations, continued duty of performance, cessation, reparation, restitution, restitutio in integrum, juridical restitution, satisfaction
