This monograph examines the army intervention point of R2P via one basic query: what are the operational demanding situations linked to army interventions less than R2P?

So, is R2P operationalizing the very unlikely or is there otherwise to rid the realm of the all too frequently incidence of genocide and mass atrocity? This researcher means that for you to solution this question even more discourse is needed sooner than normalizing R2P.
