WARPeD Paper on R2P

May 3, 2019: Tor Dahl-Eriksen presented his paper on the extent to which the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) can be deemed a global norm. 

The paper accentuated the language describing R2P in contrasting manners — as a concept, principle, doctrine, and norm. Lack of clarity around this as well as implementation problems make it intractable to define R2P as a norm that is global in its scope despite the fact that it is generally acknowledged that states are responsible for protecting their citizens in the domestic realm.
