Abstract

Instead of providing a summary of the previous discussions, this last chapter sets out to discuss a number of selected issues which are of importance to RtoP’s current status and further development. First, the chapter provides a brief discussion of specific aspects of core crimes falling under RtoP. A number of theoretical and practical issues are addressed in turn, including the multi-layered nature of RtoP obligations, early warning and assessment capabilities, entrenching a culture of accountability, timely and decisive response mechanisms and uncertainties and problems arising from sharing RtoP obligations among the different levels and relevant actors.

Keywords: Responsibility to protect, shared responsibility, international law
