The article offers information on the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) doctrine, a United Nations initiative which aims to prevent mass atrocity crimes, crimes against humanity, and war crimes occurring within a sovereign state. It states that third "pillars" of R2P, a set of rules within the doctrine, should allow the use of low-intensity military options when peaceful measures do not work. It further reflects on the background of R2P and rights of humanitarian intervention.
