This year, 2015, marks the tenth anniversary of the World Summit in which Member States embraced the Responsibility to Protect concept entailed in paragraph 138-139 of the Summit Outcome Document. This anniversary has been defined by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon as an “opportune moment” to analyze consensus reached to date around RtoP and discuss future implementation efforts. On this note, this session aims at shading light on the future implementation of RtoP and on the possibilities and prospects of a transatlantic cooperation on the responsibility to protect.

This is a pre-event of the VIII Budapest Human Rights Forum and will take place at the Hungarian Institute of Foreign Affairs and Trade from 14:30 to 17:15.

The roundtable wishes to highlight the possibilities of the media through discussing the role of journalists as individuals in addressing situations at mass atrocity risk where we shall also take account of the present migration wave. The workshop will offer an interactive space for exchanging views between journalists, representatives of governments, academia, civil society and international organizations to combine the theory with practice.

Jakarta, Indonesia

Organized By : International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect

By the International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect and the Asia-Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect

9-11 November

ICRtoP and the Asia-Pacific Centre will be holding three civil society workshops in the Southeast Asian region. They will convene civil society representatives from Indonesia, Philippines, Myanmar, Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, and Malaysia in order to: 1) deepen support of and commitment to atrocities prevention in Southeast Asia; and 2) strengthen early warning and response capacities at the domestic and regional levels to prevent and respond to atrocities.

While great strides have been made over the past ten years since the adoption of the Responsibility to Protect, much work remains before the principle is put into practice, including in the Southeast Asian region where past atrocities and ongoing internal conflicts continue to challenge the protection of vulnerable populations. 

Participants will receive training on the UN Framework of Analysis on Atrocity Crimes and work towards the creation of “draft national action plans” for civil society to pursue on atrocity prevention.

The first workshop will be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 4-6 November 2015; the second in Jakarta, Indonesia on 9-11 November 2015; and the third in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 7-9 December 2015. For more information, contact info@responsibilitytoprotect.org.
