ICRtoP Member Genocide Alert Launches New German Language Portal
21 October 2011
Officially launching on Friday 21 October, in time for the ICISS report's 10th anniversary, the new portal has several main goals. These include providing information on RtoP (beginnings, history, application, details on the three pillars, the Secretary-General report and more) to German speakers, and providing a non-partisan platform for discussion on RtoP in Germany and the rest of the world. Possible questions include the following:
1. "How do the German parties position themselves towards the norm?"
2. "How can Germany contribute to the operationalization of RtoP?"
3. "What can and should Germany do to prevent current and future mass atrocities?"
Portal sections include:
-"RtoP and Germany," describing and evaluates government positions on RtoP, including those of all German parties represented in the Bundestag.
-"Debating RtoP," providing a space for articles that relate to RtoP, Germany and current events such as Libya
-"Resources," listing core RtoP documents, a bibliography of German language articles on RtoP and links to the English language literature.
