The "political will" to protect vulnerable people from so-called "atrocity crimes" has been in "short supply" especially when it comes to UN Security Council taking action.

That's the view of Edward Luck, former Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on the "Responsibility to Protect" principle.

He was speaking at the annual General Assembly dialogue on Responsibility to Protect, otherwise known as R2P.
