Professor Knight’s presentation, The Need for the Responsibility to Protect  (R2P): Addressing Atrocity Crimes in Myanmar, will address the broad relevance and global impact of R2P. In 2005 the United Nations World Summit unanimously adopted R2P; clearly articulating the moral imperative to protect populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.

R2P continues to be a beacon calling all people to protect and respect the dignity of the human person across the globe.
