Training Toolkit on the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP)

To be considered development-relevant, a policy intervention such as the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP or R2P) doctrine must be able to answer the following questions:
- What is the policy all about?
- When is the intervention necessary?
- Why does it merit any attention?
- What changes are expected from the intervention?
- Who benefits from such changes at the end of it all?

The main goal of the toolkit produced by WACSI on RtoP is to provide better education for policy makers and civil society organisations on the doctrine. This is very important. Policy makers are most likely to become more conscious of the roles they have to play in RtoP by being exposed to the training programmes for which this toolkit is intended. Where the government is not doing enough to protect, it can be assisted by civil society organisations. This toolkit is also meant to expose these organisations to issues relevant to RtoP.
