Introduction to R2P

Join the Responsibility to Protect Student Coalition, along with the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibilty to Protect for our semester one Introduction to R2P event.

We will be discussing the fundamentals of the R2P doctrine, emerging crises, and we will hear about some of the amazing work that is being done today to aid in the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities.

We will be hearing from speakers from the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, as well as researchers who are pioneering the development of the doctrine.

There will also be the chance to hear about internship and volunteer opportunities!

Join us at 5pm on Wednesday 6th April in Forgan Smith Building (01) – Room E302 to be a part of the discussion and to learn about what you can do to be involved.

JOIN R2PSC AT UQ MARKET DAY 2016

The R2PSC has three core pillars: education, advocacy, and networking. We are an affiliate organisation of the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect that seeks to advance support for, and promote the effective implementation of, the Responsibility to Protect.

The Responsibility to Protect stipulates that:

1. The State carries the primary responsibility for the protection of populations from genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing.

2. The international community has a responsibility to assist States in fulfilling this responsibility.

3. The international community should use appropriate diplomatic, humanitarian and other peaceful means to protect populations from these crimes. If a State fails to protect its populations or is in fact the perpetrator of crimes, the international community must be prepared to take stronger measures, including the collective use of force through the UN Security Council.

Do you agree? If so, then this is the club for you!
