dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the international consensus surrounding and evolution of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) as an international norm. It outlines the theoretical, legal, and historical concepts surrounding the issue within the broader context of international human rights law, and presents a textual analysis of four annual United Nations debates on the topic. The analysis reveals that, although there have been strides toward legitimizing R2P, there is still rejection from some members of the international community. Nevertheless, with regard to global acceptance, R2P has made noteworthy progress from a mere concept to a developing norm.en_US
