Chapter Summary

This concluding chapter briefly draws some of the threads together and outlines some of the broad themes of discussion about the relationship between responsibility to protect (R2P) and the protection of refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs). Number of contributors to this book considered the conceptual dilemmas involved in linking R2P to IDP and refugee protection. Erin Mooney noted that each of the four crimes with which R2P is concerned - genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes, and crimes against humanity - invariably create displacement, and thus the implementation of R2P could go a long way to averting displacement and improving the protection of those who are displaced. Further, Mooney observed that the natural compatibility between the R2P and IDP protection frameworks holds the promise of mutually beneficial coordination of protection efforts.

Keywords: Erin Mooney; internally displaced persons (IDPs); responsibility to protect (R2P)
