This new report by the One World Trust examines the challenges facing the operationalization of the Responsibility to Protect in Regional Peacekeeping, particularly when under a Chapter VII mandate. It concludes, hile Chapter VIII of the UN Charter enables collaborative task sharing between global and regional organisations, and the UN encourages coordination, there are only few appropriate governance arrangements in place that ensure the accountability and effectiveness of regionally led responses to conflict. The report also contains recommendations on how to best realize the goals of the Responsibility to Protect for regional organizations hile maintaining the global common security principle and common standards in international responses to conflict.
