The Politics of Responsibility to Protect
Marc Saxer
April 2008

In 'The Politics of Responsibility to Protect,' Marc Saxer conducts an in-depth analysis of the political environment and the strategies of the main international actors in the struggle to strengthen the emerging R2P norm. The briefing paper, published with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES), points to the shortcomings of the concept of the Responsibility to Protect and elaborates on strategies to address the R2P impasse. The report argues that it is crucial to reach a broad international consensus on how to tackle mass atrocities in internal conflicts.
