Abstract/Summary South Asia is a region plagued by episodes of violent internal and cross-border conflict that have been accompanied by high levels of displacement and, at times, indiscriminate attacks on civilians and widespread human rights abuses. Weak national institutions, limited regional security cooperation and resistance to international engagement in internal and regional crises hamper efforts to protect South Asian populations from mass atrocity crimes. Yet, paradoxically, South Asian states are among the top troop contributors to United Nations peacekeeping operations that are mandated to protect at-risk civilian populations and assist in post-conflict peacebuilding to, among other things, restore the rule of law, support democratic institutions and protect and promote human rights.3 For these reasons—the history and continued risk of atrocities in South Asia coupled with the significant role of South Asian states in protecting civilians under the auspices of UN peacekeeping—it is worth exploring South Asian perspectives on the responsibility to protect (R2P) to understand the relevance of R2P to conflicts in the region, and the region’s policy toward UN efforts to prevent and respond to egregious attacks on civilians and grave human rights violations.
