This paper draws on the theoretical literature on the emergence and evolution of new international norms and on the norm lifecycle model to explain the emergence of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) norm and analyse its current international status. It analyses the challenges that the norm faces, explains why it is still tenuous and discusses its prospects. I find that the characteristics inherent to the norm of R2P, especially its specificity and its coherence and adherence are among the factors that can help us understand the evolution of R2P and its current international status, as well as help us think about its prospects and future viability.
