New Wine in Old Bottles? Civilian Protection in the Twenty-First Century

(p.1) Introduction
Civilian Protection in the Twenty-First Century

Cecilia Jacob

Alistair D. B. Cook

Oxford University Press

The introductory chapter locates the concept of civilian protection within existing doctrine and legal frameworks that guide international work on protection. It then raises a number of considerations that emerge in the field given the consolidation of a number of overlapping protection regimes at the international level, and the need to identify areas of both complementarity and gaps that are produced in the process of refining international regulation of protection that have developed rapidly since the late 1990s. This discussion is intended to qualify the orientation of the volume towards a recalibrated conceptualization of civilian protection in global political discourse and practice. The introduction concludes with a brief summary of the chapters in this volume.
