Role of the Responsibility to Protect in Ensuring Human Security

Document Type : Research Paper



The UNDP 1994 report introduced a new security approach called as “human security” that protects human being with all possible needs. Concurrent with this initiative and given the UNSC reaction against developments in Rwanda and Kosovo, the “responsibility to Protect” doctrine emerged as a new concept. Due to these new developments, the paper aims to answer the question that what the role of responsibility to protect is in ensuring human security? And whether the human security can be a proper base to realization of responsibility to protect?.
