In 2005, the international community made a landmark commitment to prevent mass atrocities by unanimously adopting the UN’s “Responsibility to Protect” (R2P) principle. As often as not, however, R2P has failed to translate into decisive action. Why does this gap persist between the world’s normative pledges to R2P and its ability to make it adaily lived reality?

In this new book, leading global authorities on humanitarian protection Alex Bellamyand Edward Luck offer a probing and in-depth response to this fundamental question,calling for a more comprehensive approach to the practice of R2P – one that movesbeyond states and the UN to include the full range of actors that play a role inprotecting vulnerable populations. Drawing on cases from the Middle East to sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia, they examine the forces and conditions thatproduce atrocity crimes and the challenge of responding to them quickly andeffectively. Ultimately, they advocate both for emergency policies to temporarily stopcarnage and for policies leading to sustainable change within societies andgovernments. Only by introducing these additional elements to the R2P toolkit will thefailures associated with humanitarian crises like Syria and Libya become a thing of thepast.
