Preventing Mass Atrocities: The Role of Women in the Advancement of the Responsibility to Protect
29 November 2016
The International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect (ICRtoP) would like to mark this year’s International Day with a public event exploring the relationship between the Women, Peace, and Security (WPS) and Responsibility to Protect agendas in order to foster discussion, increase awareness, and produce recommendations for concrete action.
The event, entitled "Preventing Mass Atrocities: The Role of Women in the Advancement of the Responsibility to Protect," on 12 December from 6:30pm-8:30pm at The Church Centre for the United Nations (777 First Avenue at 44th Street, NY, NY).
The event will feature civil society experts working throughout the world to advance the WPS and RtoP agendas. By convening civil society, UN, and Member State participants, the event will also serve as an opportunity to hear diverse viewpoints, and link actors working on these issues so as to raise and consider recommendations to enhance women’s participation and leadership in atrocity prevention.
