The Responsibility to Protect (R2P)

Influencing the UN agenda

Researchers in ECR2P are directly influencing and shaping the UN agenda on R2P and atrocity prevention through formal partnership agreements and consultancies to the UN Office on Genocide Prevention and the R2P.

These activities include the development of policy to change the UN Office’s consultancy process with UN Member States, direct contributions towards redefining the strategic priorities of the UN Joint Office, drafting contributions to the UN Secretary-General’s Annual Report on R2P, and providing analysis and research-based critical evidence synthesis to shape the development of prevention-oriented policy through the UN’s Atrocity Prevention Assessment project.
