Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Responsibility to Protect (R2P) contains the table of contents, preface and abbreviations for this book. This is followed by the list of contributors. After having been introduced by the Report of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS) in 2001 and after its affirmation by the UN World Summit in 2005 the concept of R2P has found broad approval both by international law doctrine and practice. It is fair to say that international law thinking has been profoundly influenced by this new approach. Nonetheless, many questions in this regard are still open. In this book, international lawyers discuss a series of fundamental aspects of R2P: the historical dimension, the relationship between R2P and general international law, and the dynamics surrounding this concept.

Keywords: ICISS; international law; international lawyers; Responsibility to Protect (R2P); UN World Summit
