Chapter Summary

This chapter establishes the foundations and current status of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) and Women, Peace, and Security Agenda (WPSA) in international law and considers why R2P and WPSA should be seen as mutually reinforcing. It considers which lessons can be learnt from the implementation of WPSA for the operationalization of R2P. 'R2P' and the 'Women, Peace, and Security Agenda' share a considerable number of parallels as they have the same aims and concerns. In contrast to WPSA implementation and operationalization of R2P has not progressed very far yet. Implementation of WPSA has gained momentum since the Security Council adopted a number of resolutions breaking down the theoretical concept of WPSA into sizable and practically realizable issues. It goes without saying that even if the R2P principle is mostly gender-blind, its implementation and operationalization must be gender-sensitive.

Keywords: gender-blind; gender-sensitive; Responsibility to Protect (R2P); Security Council; WPSA
