The Commissioners:

9:45 – 11:15 a.m.     The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) — From ICISS to Today — Watch the video

This panel will reflect on the historical foundations of R2P; its articulation by the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (ICISS); its political adoption at the World Summit in 2005; and the normative, political, and operational dynamics that have formed the concept as it exists today.

Panelists:

11:30 a.m. – 12:45 p.m.     Two Concurrent Panels

Each of the following panels will consider the spectrum of global policy responses to R2P-related threats and crises since 2005. Speakers will reflect on international efforts to engage across the crisis continuum and evaluate an array of policy approaches, ranging from international assistance and stabilization to crisis diplomacy and coercive action. While not limited to listed cases, each panel will draw lessons from a cluster of crises chosen to reflect the range of challenges and opportunities faced in developing direct R2P policies. Comparisons between and beyond these cases are encouraged.

Panel 1:
R2P as a Tool — Identifying Past and Potential Added Value — Watch the video

This panel will examine how R2P has been applied across different cases — whether as a rallying cry, a policy framework, or a tool for diplomatic engagement — and to what degree these uses have been effective. It will seek to identify R2P’s added value, considering both limitations and hidden potential as the concept evolves in the coming decade.

Chair:

Panelists:

Panel 2:
Bringing Responsibility Home — Domestic Implementation of R2P — Watch the video

This panel will consider what exercising R2P means for the internal and foreign policy of individual states. Panelists will speak to the experience of an expanding global network of officials working at the domestic level to integrate R2P within national policy. Discussion will evaluate needs, opportunities, and challenges as these officials face their mandate in the coming decade.

Chair:

Panelists:

4:30 – 6 p.m.     R2P in 2022 — Watch the video

This panel will project a vision of how R2P can and should develop over the coming decade. It will consider what challenges and prospects the concept will face and what world leaders, experts, and advocates must consider as global events unfold. Speakers will be invited to imagine what “success” for R2P might look like over the course of the next ten years, and to consider how the world’s approach to recent crises might look different were those same crises to be faced in 2022.
