UN Assistant Secretary-General and Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect, Dr. Ivan Šimonovic delivers second annual ECR2P lecture on campus
On Thursday 30 November, we were delighted to be joined by UN Assistant Secretary-General and Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect (R2P), Dr. Ivan Šimonovic, who delivered the second annual lecture of the European Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (ECR2P) on campus.
Dr. Šimonovic met with POLIS PhD students working on R2P-related topics before delivering the lecture to the wider University audience, plus participants from across the UK who travelled to the campus for this sold-out event.
Introductory remarks were delivered by Dr Cristina Stefan, Co-Director of the ECR2P, and Dr. Šimonovic was formally welcomed to the University by Professor Jeremy Higham, Dean of the Faculty of Education, Social Sciences and Law.
Dr. Šimonovic’s lecture was entitled “Responsibility to Protect: Operationalisation or Marginalisation?”, and was followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
