Podcast: "The Responsibility to Protect" and the Unreasonable Veto

Podcast: "The Responsibility to Protect" and the Unreasonable Veto
Description
The roots of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) are to be found in the international community's attempts to navigate a route through UN Security Council (UNSC) inaction in the face of mass human rights atrocities.

Issues relating to this question are considered in 'The Responsibility to Protect and the "Unreasonable" Veto'.
