Panel Event: Everyone has the Responsibility to Protect
UN Association Maine Chapter
24 October 2012, 5:00 – 7:30 PM
University of Southern Maine, Portland Campus (Glickman Library, 7th Floor)
October 24th marks the 68th year of the UN’s existence. How is the UN working to protect populations from genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes and crimes against humanity? The international legal norm known as Responsibility to Protect (R2P) in many ways has evolved through the UN. Its aim is to end mass atrocities. This has never been more relevant given the human rights atrocities being committed in countries around the world.
The UNA Maine Chapter and USM International Relations Association organized a panel presentation and discussion with experts in the international field cosponsored by the International Coalition for the Responsibility to Protect.
Panelists included Dr. Pauline Baker, US Fund for Peace; Amb. Charles Dunbar, BU Int’l Studies Dept; Prof. Ali Ahmida, UNE Political Science Dept;Dylan Hedtler-Gaudette, USM International Studies major.
