Human Security and R2P: A Solution to Civilian Insecurity in Darfur
Human Security Journal
Ben Simon Okolo
The following report, published in the Human Security Journal, makes a case for international intervention in Darfur using the framework of the Responsibility to Protect. Based on assessing civilian insecurity in Darfur and its relationship to the perpetuation of violence by state and non-state actors, Ben Simon Okolo concludes that intervention, including forceful intervention, is necessary to give R2P a reath of fresh air. Likewise, he interprets the lack of action as being a lack of political will, despite the situation being clearly defined by high level panels within the UN.
