R2P Conference to Examine Future of Atrocity Prevention
‘R2P: The Next Decade’ to gather Senior Officials, Experts, Civil Society

WHAT: The Stanley Foundation, in partnership with the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the MacArthur Foundation, will mark the 10th anniversary of the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) with a full-day conference examining R2P through past experience and contemporary realities, and considering the prospects and challenges steering its evolution from political principle to policy doctrine into the next decade.

WHEN: 9:30 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. EST, Wednesday, January 18, 2012

WHO: The daylong program will bring together figures critical to the historical and contemporary evolution of R2P, including United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon; members of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty; key international, regional, and national officials; academic and policy experts; civil society figures; and journalists.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will provide a keynote lunch address, reflecting on the state and future of R2P and outlining key priorities for its development over the course of his second term. You can view the full agenda and learn more at www.r2p10.org.

WHY: The Responsibility to Protect (R2P) has evolved steadily since its first articulation by the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty in 2001 and its political adoption at the 2005 World Summit. Recent global events—both ongoing and unanticipated—have drawn mass atrocity threats into even sharper focus, mobilized novel approaches, and raised important questions about how political commitment should be translated into concrete policies that prevent and halt atrocity violence.

RSVP REQUIRED: Space is limited. To attend, RSVP to Sean Harder at sharder@stanleyfoundation.org. You can also watch a live stream of the conference on FORA.tv.

Courier Courier
The Summer 2018 edition of Courier considers the future of multilateralism. Is it a tool for applying a nation’s collective intellect to the world’s greatest challenges? Or is it an affront to state sovereignty and an indication of political ineptitude?

Also in this issue, we explore the UN approach to sustaining peace and the Security Council’s role in climate policy; how Cape Town, South Africa is modeling climate action at the local level; and the importance of educating youth on the potential of global citizenship.
