Professor the Hon Gareth Evans AC QC FASSA (Chancellor and Honorary Professorial Fellow, Australian National University; President Emeritus, International Crisis Group; former Foreign Minister of Australia) will give a series of three public lectures and a concluding symposium as Humanitas Visiting Professor in Statecraft and Diplomacy 2013.

Abstract

Is it possible to end once and for all genocide and other major crimes against humanity occurring behind sovereign state walls: to ensure that there will never again be another Cambodia, Rwanda, Srebrenica or Darfur? Has the new principle of “the responsibility to protect’ (or “R2P”) unanimously embraced by the UN in 2005, and applied with dramatic effect in Libya in 2011, now run its course with the Security Council paralysis over Syria? Gareth Evans will draw in this lecture on his role as a key initiator and global advocate of R2P as, inter alia, co-chair of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty (2001) Full details: http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/events/2389/
