CALL FOR PAPERS – 5th Responsibility to Protect in Theory and Practice Conference

20 Years: Idea, Inaction, and Implementation of the R2P
Liverpool, 1st – 2nd June 2021

In 2001, the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty published its report on ‘The Responsibility to Protect’, paving the way for the idea to be adopted by the international community at the 2005 World Summit. For 20 years, the concept of the Responsibility to Protect has developed form its initial idea, faced the inaction of States and the United Nations Security Council, but has also seen progress in its implementation by ‘R2P Focal Points’ and in the UN General Assembly.

To mark 20 years since the publication of the report, the Organising Committee invites abstracts to be submitted for a two-day conference in June 2021, to be held in Ormskirk, just outside of Liverpool, United Kingdom. Please use the form at the end of this document to submit your abstract: Responsbility to Protect 2021 Call for Papers (1)
