Conflict Prevention and the Responsibility to Protect: IPI Blue Paper no. 7

This publication is part of the Blue Paper Series [read more about this publication series]

Jenna Slotin, Lead Rapporteur

 

 

This Blue Paper addresses both conflict prevention and the related but distinct concept of the responsibility to protect (RtoP). IPI deals with these issues in the expectation that exploring the challenges and opportunities facing each may help to clarify how to move forward in a mutually reinforcing manner from rhetoric to action on both fronts. The Blue Paper lays out recommendations on how to (1) establish early-warning capability; (2) enhance multilateral capacity to respond; (3) reinforce member-state oversight and input; (4) enhance strategic partnerships; and (5) conduct ongoing studies of RtoP.
