A panel discussion on the Future of Global Humanitarianism
Join us for a fascinating discussion on the future of global humanitarianism!
About this Event
This year marks the 15th anniversary since 150 heads of state and government unanimously endorsed the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) at the 2005 World Summit. To commemorate this special anniversary, the Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, in partnership with the InterAction Council and The Park Group, have brought together a fantastic panel to discuss the future of global humanitarianism.
On Sept 8th, join us for an interactive discussion featuring Dr. Peter Medgyessy (former Prime Minister of Hungary), Dr. Allan Rock (former Canadian Ambassador to the UN), Dr. Karen Smith (UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative on R2P), and Q/A moderated by Dr. Tom Axworthy (Secretary-General of the InterAction Council)!
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required via Eventbrite. We will send you the Zoom link prior to the start of the event.
What is R2P?
Responsibility to Protect is an emerging humanitarian principle which states that when a state or a government fails to protect its own people from mass atrocity crimes (genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing), the international community has the responsibility to do so.
