Responsibility to Protect (R2P): DRCongo & Armenia


The goal of the project is to mobilize public and political will to prevent and, if necessary, act in the face of genocide and mass atrocity by building advocates on R2P in the DRCongo and Armenia.

The urgency for civilian protection has never been more pertinent than the present. Responsibility to Protect is a principle that seeks to ensure the international community prevents mass atrocity. One major challenge in moving R2P from theory to practice is ensuring that the scope and limits of the norm as it has evolved are well understood in all parts of the world. When preventive action is required, leaders will only take risks if their citizens demand it.


Public demand depends on civil society's understanding of R2P and capacity to lobby governments to uphold their commitment to civilian protection. This project trains students, journalists and politicians to actively work to prevent mass atrocity.

Long-Term Impact

We will educate hundreds of advocates from the DRCongo and Armenia on R2P--encouraging and facilitating cooperation between different social groups to work together towards the prevention of mass atrocity.
