Abstract

Global Governance 22 (2016), 473–490 From Reaction to Resilience in Mass Atrocity Prevention: An Analysis of the 2013 UN Report The Responsibility to Protect: State Responsibility and Prevention Stephen McLoughlin This article analyzes the 2013 UN Secretary-General’s report, The Responsi- bility to Protect: State Responsibility and Prevention. By presenting a framework for prevention that incorporates both risk factors and sources of resilience, the report advocates an understanding of why it is that some states do not experience mass atrocities. By doing so, it is the first policy document to explore in detail the notion that local and national actors are the primary agents of long-term (structural) prevention. This article demon- strates how the report is conceptually distinct from previous framings of structural prevention. It then provides a brief evaluation of the report, using illustrations from Botswana and Zanzibar to highlight its strengths and limitations. KEYWORDS: prevention, mass atrocities, United Nations. UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN KI-MOON’S 2013 REPORT, THE Responsibility to Protect: State Responsibility and Prevention, advocates a fresh approach to the long-term prevention of mass atrocities.
