Abstract

The concept of responsibility to protect is the latest manifestation of a post-Cold War process of liberal interventionism that includes failed States discourse, the development (and demise?) of humanitarian intervention and the introduction of the ‘new’ paradigm of responsibility to protect. Responsibility to protect has apparently reached the stage of implementation, but its use in Libya and Syria in 2011 and 2012 have left many questions unanswered. This chapter seeks to examine the genealogy of the concept and its failings in relation to both Libya and Syria with a view to encouraging its further development going forward.
