This paper aims to understand how NATO’s intervention in Libya affected the R2P. It attempts to do so by taking the essence of the normative linear model as a basis for charting the evolution of the discourse around the R2P in its first decade. It will also look at sovereignty and the special relationship these two norms share, in an attempt to challenge classic approaches to these norms and the emerging discord around them. Ultimately, this paper puts forth the need to look at the R2P through a divergent development lens to best analyze the current state the norm finds itself in.
