ECR2P attends civil society dialogue with Dr Ivan Šimonović and Mr Jonas Jonsson


Representatives of the ECR2P - Dr Eglantine Staunton from the University of Leeds, Professor Enzo Maria Le Fevre Cervini from the Budapest Centre for Mass Atrocities Prevention, and Dr Eamon Aloyo from the Hague Institute for Global Justice - attended the Civil Society Dialogue Network Meeting organised by the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO) in Brussels on 16 February 2017.

Since 2015, the Civil Society Dialogue Network (CSDN) has been hosting a series of meetings on the EU and the UN. In March 2015, an exchange of views with the former UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on the RtoP, Ms Jennifer Welsh, was also organised to discuss the most effective ways to ensure the protection of civilians in armed conflicts.

During this meeting, the recently appointed UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on the RtoP, Dr Ivan Šimonović, and the Head of Multilateral Relations Division of the European External Action Service, Mr Jonas Jonsson, exchanged views with civil society experts involved in conflict prevention and peacebuilding and EU policy-makers on the current challenges related to the implementation of R2P.
