New United Nations Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect
Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect
12 July 2013
 
The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect welcomes today’s appointment of Dr.
Jennifer M. Welsh to the position of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Adviser
on the Responsibility to Protect.
 
Dr. Welsh’s appointment sends a clear signal from the UN Secretary-General of the need to
strengthen the UN’s role in preventing mass atrocities. (…)
 
Dr. Simon Adams, Executive Director of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect,
welcomed the appointment: “The Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect plays a
critical role in developing the conceptual, political and institutional aspects of the
Responsibility to Protect. Dr. Welsh has been appointed Special Adviser at a time when
populations in Syria, the Democratic Republic of Congo and elsewhere face the daily threat
of mass atrocities. Dr. Welsh’s academic experience and personal resolve will help galvanize
collective action in the pursuit of our shared objective of ending mass atrocity crimes once
and for all.”
 
The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect looks forward to closely working with Dr.
Welsh and to continue supporting the work of the UN Office on Genocide Prevention and the
Responsibility to Protect.
