Something is stirring south of border. The Chicago Council on Global Affairs is hosting a conference this week with international leaders on R2P, The Responsibility to Protect: Engaging America
Over the course of the conference, a three-part strategy will be developed to increase America’s commitment to protect populations from mass atrocities. Experts and policy makers will focus on what responsibility to protect means, why it matters and why the U.S. should embrace it; policies for implementation; as well as how to bring the responsibility to protect to the center of national debate.
The ‘windy city’ was also the first city council to pass a resolution that endorses the ‘responsibility to protect’, and Chicago is just getting started.
