Founding Purposes of the Coalition
As agreed to by the founding Steering Committee on 27-28 January 2009, the International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect will pursue the following purposes:
  1. Strengthen normative consensus for RtoP at the international, regional, sub-regional and national levels.
  2. Push for governments, regional and sub-regional organizations and the UN to strengthen capacities to prevent and halt genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
  3. Further the understanding of RtoP among governments, NGOs, and the public.
  4. Help build and fortify a like-minded group of governments in support of RtoP.
  5. Mobilize NGOs to push for action to save lives in RtoP country-specific situations.
