The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) is intended to provide an effective framework for responding to crimes of genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. It is a response to the many conscious-shocking cases where atrocities - on the worst scale - have occurred even during the post 1945 period when the United Nations was built to save us all from the scourge of genocide. The R2P concept accords to sovereign states and international institutions a responsibility to assist peoples who are at risk - or experiencing - the worst atrocities. R2P maintains that collective action should be taken by members of the United Nations to prevent or halt such gross violations of basic human rights. This Handbook, containing contributions from leading theorists, and practitioners (including former foreign ministers and special advisors), examines the progress that has been made in the last 10 years; it also looks forward to likely developments in the next decade.

This book considers who should undertake humanitarian intervention in response to an ongoing or impending humanitarian crisis, such as found in Rwanda in early 1994, Kosovo in 1999, and Darfur more recently. Should we prefer intervention by the UN, NATO, a regional or subregional organization (such as the African Union), a state, a group of states, or someone else? The book answers this question by, first, considering what sorts of qualities interveners shouldpossess and their relative importance. For instance, how important is that interveners are legal, effective, have the support of their citizens, and are welcomed by those subject to the crisis? Second, it considers whether the current interveners actually possess these qualities. For instance, wouldintervention by the UN be legal, effective, have internal support, and be welcomed by those subject to the crisis? Overall, the book develops a normative account of legitimacy to consider these issues. It uses this account to assess not only current interveners, but also the desirability of potential reforms to the mechanisms and agents of humanitarian intervention.
