  • Grant

Abstract


  • This project contributes to the knowledge, existing understanding and practice of the responsibility to protect R2P within the Asia Pacific, and in Oceania in particular. It first assesses public statements on R2P by governments of ASEAN and Pacific states made either at the United Nations or in the media, and creates a typology of R2P acceptance. It then moves to gather specific information about states in Oceania, particularly where Australia is supporting state-building: Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste. It assesses existing training programs within police-building missions in Oceania that aim to contribute to the regional, and thus global, adherence to the implementation if R2P.
