The implementation of the responsibility to protect in the Malian crisis since 2012
The international community's intervention in the Malian crisis since 2012 reflects its commitment to respect for the policy of the responsibility to protect, which focuses on the security of populations in circumstances that may seriously violate their rights, but also to restore the sovereignty of the de facto failing State. The fulfillment of this obligation by the worldwide community has made it possible to restore much of the sovereignty of the State of Mali and to save the lives of the civilian populations left behind. Despite these successes, deficiencies are still evident in the application of the responsibility to protect process. There are some at the level of the State of Mali as well as at the level of the actors of the global community. Strengthening the capacity of the country's security forces and militarizing the conflict zones will address the shortcomings identified.
