Global Responsibility to Protect (GR2P) is APR2P's premier journal for the study and practice of R2P. The journal seeks to publish the latest and best research on the R2P principle, its development as a new norm in global politics, and its operationalisation through the work of governments, NGOs and international and regional bodies. It also seeks to explore the relationship and applicability of R2P to past and present cases of genocide and mass atrocity crimes, and the international response to those cases. GR2P also serves as a repository for lessons learned and analysis of best practices; it will disseminate information about the current status of R2P and efforts to realise its promise. Each issue contains research articles and at least one piece on the practicalities of R2P, be that the current state of R2P diplomacy or its application in the field.
