Join the conversation – ICRtoP launches blog & Twitter account
27 June 2011
The "Responsibility to Protect", (RtoP or R2P), has reached new heights with the situations in Libya and Côte d'Ivoire, and has become prominent in discussions by governments, international organizations, civil society, news agencies, and individuals. At such an important moment, the Coalition is very excited to announce the launch of the new ICRtoP blog and Twitter account. The ICRtoP will actively engage in the online discussion on RtoP, lending an important voice from civil society and other actors on the protection of populations from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic cleansing.
The ICRtoP blog will include discussions on all aspects of RtoP, from background and in-depth analyses, to developments at the UN and around the world, responses to online news and commentaries, and academic and policy-related discussions. The Coalition will also offer a unique perspective in this regard by featuring the voice of civil society to the RtoP conversation. Similarly, the objective of ICRtoP's Twitter account is to promote information sharing on RtoP and encourage conversation by engaging in discussion with the Twitterverse.
Underpinning our new social media presence is a desire to bring the online conversation on RtoP to you. People from around the world are united in the protection of populations from mass atrocities in a collective effort to safeguard our most fundamental human rights. In this effort, your voice is as important as ours, and we hope that you engage with us in the RtoP conversation.
