The EU and the Responsibility to Protect

(p.95) 6 The EU and the Responsibility to Protect
The EU's Role in Global Governance

Geert De Baere

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the significance of the responsibility to protect (R2P) for the EU's external relations and for the EU as a law-based system — bound to the protection of human rights and the respect for the principles of the UN Charter — and the significance of the EU for the implementation of R2P. It begins with a brief discussion of the content and the legal status of R2P. It then considers the role of regional organizations in its implementation. It analyses the role the EU could play in that regard and offers suggestions on what the EU's most valuable contribution could be.

Keywords:   R2P, European Union, international relations, external relations, foreign policy, human rights protection, regional organizations
