Report on the General Assembly Plenary Debate on the Responsibility to Protect


In the view of the Coalition, the July debate was a success for both advocates and victims working to prevent and halt genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing. Over a period of three days, governments demonstrated not only intense interest in the norm, but also made a strong show of support for implementing their 2005 consensus commitment to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing.


In this
report, we provide context for the debate, areas of consensus and divergence among governments, an overview of concerns raised, and challenges facing the UN, governments and civil society in the coming months.
