About ICRtoPThe Responsibility to Protect ('RtoP' or 'R2P') is a new international security and human rights norm to address the international community's failure to prevent and stop genocides, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. The International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect (ICRtoP) is a global network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) dedicated to advancing the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP or R2P) at the international, regional, sub-regional and national levels. The Coalition was formed in January 2009 by representatives of eight regional and international non-governmental organizations.
ICRtoP works to achieve the following five goals:
1. Increase awareness of RtoP among governments, NGOs and the public.
2. Push for international, regional, sub-regional and national endorsements of RtoP.
3. Encourage governments, regional and sub-regional organizations and the UN to build the capacity to prevent and halt genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
4. Help build and strengthen global support from governments for RtoP.
5. Mobilize NGOs to push for action to save lives in RtoP country-specific situations.
