      A decade after the United Nations adopted the principle of a Responsibility to Protect (R2P), the world’s record of protection from atrocity crimes remains grim. According to the authors, the popular assessment of global deadlock between “Western” interventionists and “non-Western” stalwarts of sovereignty, and a shifting balance toward the latter, is misleading in two critical ways: it misidentifies the core of the political conflict, and it fails to engage seriously with the practical challenges of protection from atrocity crimes. This finding is based on two years of research into the historical, cultural and institutional origins of how Brazil, China, Europe, India, Russia, South Africa and the United States engaged with the R2P debate, and how conflicts over its application have shaped the world’s expectations of protection from atrocities. Leaving the old debates on sovereignty behind and picking the right battles, the authors argue, holds the potential for a more constructive debate that grapples with the difficulties and dilemmas of protection and seeks effective and responsible ways forward.
