This paper sheds light on the complexities intergovernmental organizations are facing during post-conflict reconstruction. The article discusses the added-value of Social Responsibility in the context of the Comprehensive Approach, involving collaboration amongst defense, diplomacy and development. To better understand the role of public-private partnerships in enabling Corporate Social Responsibility activities we conducted a single case study. The aim is to better grasp the organizational design of the Comprehensive Approach as well as to comprehend the type of relations during the decision-making process. The results of the content analysis of 8 semi-structured interviews with senior diplomats, military commanders, and civilian entrepreneurs support the discussion. Particular attention is paid to the existing variety in norms relevant to the involvement of the private sector, social consciousness, and the potential role of public-private partnerships in enabling stabilization as well as reconstruction in post-conflict zones. Lessons learned are presented in the conclusion
