This report aims to provide information and analysis on the ways in which civil society organizations (CSOs) have engaged with the norm of Responsibility to Protect (R2P). Since the proclammation of R2P in 2001 and its adoption in by one hundred and fifty states in 2005, civil society organizations have paid increasing attention to R2P. Several civil society organizations, such as the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect and the International Coalition for Responsibility to Protect, have formed with a mandate specifically focused on R2P. These organizations, which are a collaborative enterprise between numerous CSOs, have significantly increased the level of CSO engagement with R2P. These developments, in conjunction with the proclamation of UN Resolution 1973 authorizing a no-fly zone over Libya on March 17th, 2011, have intensified interest in R2P amongst civil society groups in recent years.
