Responsibility to Protect

Photo credit: United Nations Photo/flickr

Preventing genocide and mass atrocities should be a priority for NATO and not merely an idealistic add-on to the core collective defence agenda. It is a moral and strategic imperative for the Alliance to implement the UN Responsibility to Protect (R2P) agenda and resources should be directed towards the development of a comprehensive approach to genocide prevention. NATO should also move towards a human security approach, contributing to the protection of every individual human being and not focus merely on the defence of territorial borders. This means prohibiting military activities that indiscriminately impact on civilians, safeguarding the economic and social infrastructures of civilian life, accurately accounting for civilian casualties arising from NATO operations. This is a summary list of all the content in the site categorised within the Responsibility to Protect policy area.
