Organized By : European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (ECR2P)
The responsibility to protect (R2P) principle has been criticised for being gender-blind. In the context of such concerns, there has been an effort to render the principle more gender-sensitive. This has entailed paying greater attention to the differentiated impact of atrocities on women and men, and foregrounding the importance of gender and female empowerment in efforts to prevent atrocities.
The aim of the conference hosted by the European Centre for R2P (ECR2P) is to take stock of these efforts and to assess how successful they have been in incorporating gender into the protection agenda. The ECR2P invites both conceptual and empirical contributions from scholars and practitioners working on gender, R2P, peacebuilding and cognate fields.
