The concept of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) was initiated at the UN in 2005, leaning on the work provided by the Canadian-led initiative of the International Commission on Intervention and State Security (ICISS).   Clarification of the concept has been difficult and its application vexatious as well as disastrous. To contribute to the ongoing dialogue on the need to clarify the concept and also fill the gap in knowledge and information, the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre (KAIPTC) is scheduled to run a two-week course to provide the necessary professional training, requisite knowledge as well as the basic information on the concept of R2P.
