ICRtoP publishes updated FAQs on Impact of Action in Libya on the Responsibility to Protect
ICRtoP has responded to frequently-asked-questions on the impact of the application of the Responsibility to Protect to the war crimes and crimes against humanity alleged to have occurred in Libya since mid-February. The document focuses on how the international community responded to the crisis and why the response was consistent with the RtoP framework. It also reminds that Libya is not the first ‘RtoP case’, also looking at how the norm applies to other situations including Cote d’Ivoire and Syria. We hope this document will be helpful to a variety of actors, as they engage with governments, civil society, media and students and continue to reflect on ongoing crises and responses aimed at protecting populations from mass atrocities.
