Chapter Summary

The responsibility to protect (R2P), first extensively addressed by the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS) in its 2001 report, has since been the substance of several reports and debates within the UN and has catalyzed a large amount of academic literature debating different aspects, particularly its nature as a concept, principle or norm of international law or the content of its components, the elements of prevention, protection and rebuilding. Only recently, academia has turned to the question of the advancement of the UN Women, Peace, and Security Agenda (WPSA) in the context of R2P. This chapter establishes the foundations and current status of R2P and WPSA in international law and considers why R2P and WPSA should be seen as mutually reinforcing. It also considers which lessons can be learnt from the implementation of WPSA for the operationalization of R2P.

Keywords: ICISS; international law; responsibility to protect (R2P); WPSA
