Sudan:  Fulfilling the Responsibility to Protect
The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect

 
 
Introduction
 
Sudan stands today at a precipice. In 100 days the South will hold a referendum on self-determination with a vote for independence expected. Extensive early warnings exist indicating a real threat of the commission of mass atrocities surrounding the referendum, with those populations most at risk already identified. This threat looms while intertribal violence in the South is rising; conflict in Darfur persists; attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) in Central and Western Equatorial states continue unabated; and a return to war in the South is a possibility.  

Click here to read final policy brief, "Sudan: Fulfilling the Responsibility to Protect.” which clarifies how R2P applies to Sudan and argues that member states must not wait until mass atrocities are occurring to act.
