[RED DEMOCRATICA] Fresh perspectives on R2P


9 March 2015

Fresh perspectives on R2P

We would like to draw your attention to a number of new and updated publications from the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. 

Since the publication of our last policy brief on the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) in May 2014, the UN has deployed a 12,000-strong peacekeeping operation, known as MINUSCA. Despite this, the conflict in CAR expanded in scale and scope during 2014 and mass atrocity crimes against civilians are ongoing. In this new policy brief, entitled "Reinforcing the Responsibility to Protect in the Central African Republic" the Global Centre reviews the dynamics of the violence. This analysis follows a research mission conducted by the Global Centre to CAR between 27 January and 8 February 2015.

Since the Global Centre released a policy brief in August 2014 on "North Korea and the Responsibility to Protect," the UN Security Council has put the human rights situation in North Korea on its formal agenda and held its first ever briefing on the situation. The Global Centre's updated policy brief reflects recent and important developments, and offers recommendations to the international community for ending the commission of crimes against humanity and other gross violations of human rights in the DPRK.

Despite important reforms in Burma/Myanmar, the human rights situation for the Rohingya dramatically worsened in 2014 as a direct result of government policies aimed at their systematic persecution, segregation and disenfranchisement. In this updated Policy Brief, entitled "Persecution of the Rohingya in Burma/Myanmar and the Responsibility to Protect," the Global Centre reflects upon the Rohingya's worsening plight and urges the international community to press the government of Burma/Myanmar to amend its policies.

In addition to these important updates, the Global Centre continues its work on commemorating the 10th anniversary of the adoption of R2P during the 2005 UN World Summit. On 27 February Dr. Simon Adams delivered a speech on "R2P's next decade" at the "R2P at 10: Progress, Challenges & Opportunities in the Asia-Pacific" conference in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. 

The Global Centre has also been encouraging member states to adopt a "statement of principles" on the use of the veto in mass atrocity situations ahead of the UN's 70th anniversary. Following several UN Security Council open debates and special events in January and February we have updated our summary of references on the need for veto restraint by the UN Security Council in mass atrocity situations.
