Russia, the R2P and human rights: ensuring responsible protection

Derek Averre, Lance Davies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Russia’s position on R2P is aimed at strengthening its international and regional influence and affirming its legitimacy in a global order underpinned by the principle of sovereign equality. However, it has been increasingly accompanied by values-based narratives – including on human rights – which challenge Western liberalism and may inhibit a more constructive approach to responsible protection.
