This chapter moves the debate to the bureaucratic apparatus of intergovernmental organizations and their individual representatives, who became R2P advocates due to their specific mandate (such as the UN Special Adviser of the Secretary-General for R2P and the staff of the office); institutionalized R2P endorsement (for instance through the EU Focal Point and its representative); or through ad-hoc R2P-based agenda (as in the case of the OAS Secretary General in the case of Venezuela). For some, R2P advocacy became part of their job with an agenda partially inherited from their predecessors. At the same time, each of these civil servants and bureaucrats chose a specific style of R2P promotion, again shaped by their professional experience or personal background. This chapter will also try to separate the sources of leverage linked to the position from the influence based on individual authority, seniority or personal contacts.
