United Nations Issues Conference

February 24, 2012 - February 26, 2012

New York, NY

At the Stanley Foundation’s 43rd United Nations Issues Conference, the Stanley Foundation and the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect will convene a “Preparatory Workshop for the Second Meeting of the R2P Focal Points Network.”

In September 2010, the governments of Denmark and Ghana and the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect launched an initiative to build a global network of national Focal Points focused on internal implementation of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). The first formal meeting of these Focal Points was held in May 2011, co-hosted by the governments of Costa Rica, Denmark, and Ghana in association with the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect.

The second meeting of R2P Focal Points will be held in July or September 2012. This preparatory workshop, co-convened by the Stanley Foundation and the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, will consider the key questions and challenges immediately faced by individual R2P Focal Points and their developing global network.

The conference will bring together government representatives, UN officials, and thematic experts to compare recent efforts, experience, and shared challenges in establishing a national Focal Point and outlining its mandate. The dialogue will also forward guidance on how to build a global network of Focal Points that can effectively link decision makers and mobilize capacities for atrocity prevention at the national, regional, and international levels.
