New Q & A's on the Responsibility to Protect and Burma/Myanmar, Darfur, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea
The ICRtoP has published the latest additions to its "At a Glance" series, an educational feature that clarifies the relationship between the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP or R2P) and related thematic areas, RtoP tools, and conflict situations.
In these newest "At a Glance" documents, we provide a 2-page overview of how RtoP relates to three current conflict situations: Burma/Myanmar, Darfur, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). The Q & A's give a brief background of the crises, an outline of why the international community has a responsibility to protect populations in these countries, and explanations of how various actors have or have not upheld this responsibility.
