Description
Summary:Military intervention has been a controversial issue that carries out a responsibility for International Governmental Organizations and countries carrying it. The international community debates with guilt for not doing enough to stop massacres and interventions gone wrong. The principle of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) calls for protection of civilians when its state has failed to do so. This thesis analyzes the case of Ivory Coast, where this principle proved to be key in order to avoid further bloodshed on the Postelectoral crisis between 2010/2011 and how the role of a Security Council member helped for intervention to arrive in the nick of time.
