Formatted Abstract/Summary
This chapter presents an overview of the challenges and constraints in promoting the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) norms in Southeast Asia, focusing mainly on the potential role of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ᴀsᴇᴀɴ) in preventing mass atrocities covered by RtoP. Specifically, it examines the characteristics of states and political systems of members of ᴀsᴇᴀɴ, the political dynamics of the organisation, and to what extent its traditional norms and institutional set-up serve as the main challenges to promoting RtoP in this part of the world. The chapter also identifies some entry points or opportunities for RtoP promotion to gain some ground, notwithstanding the limitations within ᴀsᴇᴀɴ. It also discusses the role of the Asia Pacific Centre for Responsibility to Protect (ᴀᴘʀtoP) in promoting RtoP in Southeast Asia through its country programmes and regional engagement, and the extent to which RtoP is appreciated by civil society groups in the region, especially those engaged in peace, conflict prevention and post-conflict rebuilding efforts.
