The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect launched the R2P Monitor on 10 January 2012. The R2P Monitor is a bimonthly publication applying an R2P lens to situations where populations are at risk of, or are currently facing, mass atrocity crimes.
The R2P Monitor:
- Provides background on populations at risk of mass atrocity crimes, with particular emphasis on key events and actors and their connection to the threat, or commission, of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
- Offers analysis of the country's past history in relation to mass atrocity crimes; the factors that have enabled their possible commission, or that prevent their resolution; and the receptivity of the situation to positive influences that would assist in preventing further crimes.
- Tracks the international response to the situation with a particular emphasis upon the actions of the United Nations (UN), key regional actors and the International Criminal Court (ICC).
- Suggests necessary action to prevent or halt the commission of mass atrocity crimes.
