As part of our continuing series exploring contemporary reponses to Genocide, we present a panel discussion entitled "Genocide and the 'Responsibility to Protect': The Evolution of International Law"
RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT (“RtoP” or “R2P”) is a new international political/legal norm developed to address the international community’s failure to prevent and stop genocides, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. A distinguished panel will explore the evolution of the developing norm, its current status in law and politics, and its greatest challenges going forward.
