In order to determine how R2P can be established as a norm the essay considers the transactions which take place whereby an idea becomes a norm. It examines under what conditions such a transaction can take place and when and how one can ascertain that an idea has become a norm i.e. that the idea of R2P gains a normative status. (Less)
