The Responsibility to Protect: From Evasive to Reluctant Action?

The Role of Global Middle Powers
In this publication, researchers from leading think-tanks in the four GIBSA countries present a variety of viewpoints on Right to Protect "R2P". While the GIBSA countries demonstrate widespread support for R2P, there is no single overriding position. Many of their official standings mirror the arguments on R2P in the global discourse. The publication aims to stimulate new thinking and to nurture a common understanding of the use and limitations of R2P. This discussion is urgently needed given that many internal conflicts are still being waged that put civilian populations at risk.
