In light of the upcoming debate on the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP) of the UN General Assembly, FES New York co-hosted a luncheon focusing on the role of human rights mechanism and actors to encourage states to protect their population from mass atrocities. The invited panelists debated the recommendations from the latest Secretary-General’s report on how the international community can support states in this responsibility,  for instance with development assistance for building state capacity and with peacekeeping and stabilization operations to assist states under stress.
