Overview

This book provides an in-depth introduction to, and analysis of, the issues relating to the implementation of the recent Responsibility to Protect principle in international relations

The Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) has come a long way in a short space of time. It was endorsed by the General Assembly of the UN in 2005, and unanimously reaffirmed by the Security Council in 2006 (Resolution 1674) and 2009 (Resolution 1894). UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has identified the challenge of implementing RtoP as one of the cornerstones of his Secretary-Generalship. The principle has also become part of the working language of international engagement with humanitarian crises and has been debated in relation to almost every recent international crisis – including Sudan, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Georgia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Darfur and Somalia.

Concentrating mainly on implementation challenges including the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities, strengthening the UN’s capacity to respond, and the role of regional organizations, this book introducing readers to contemporary debates on R2P and provides the first book-length analysis of the implementation agenda.

The book will be of great interest to students of the responsibility to protect, humanitarian intervention, human rights, foreign policy, security studies and IR and politics in general.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Alex Bellamy, one of the most competent students and advocates of the ‘responsibility to protect’ (often abbreviated as ‘R2P’), provides a very timely and useful account of the origins of this notion, of its evolution, and of its successes and failures between 2005 (when it was endorsed by the General Assembly of the United Nations) and 2010.' - Pierre Hasner, Survival, Vol. 53:5, Oct - Nov 2011

‘Alex Bellamy here builds on his previous book on the subject (published 2008) which greeted the establishment of R2P as a key aspect of how the world would be (politically) managed in the new millennium. This new book, revealingly subtitled "From Words to Deeds" examines, after the first five years of formal establishment, what impact R2P has actually had. [...] Bellamy’s book will find its way on to essential reading lists almost immediately.’ – Christopher May, Lancaster University, Political Studies Review, Vol 10:3, Sept. 2012
