Call for Papers – The European Union and the Responsibility to Protect workshop
The European Union and the Responsibility to Protect workshop
Centre for European Legal Studies, University of Exeter
20 September 2019
The workshop will promote an intense and targeted discussion of the EU’s approach to the R2P from a variety of perspectives. The aim of the workshop is to uncover the range of policy choices preferred by the EU in its efforts to contribute to the R2P; why the EU seems to be more engaged in specific humanitarian crises and how the EU collaborates with other international actors in its commitment to the R2P, for example. The workshop will critically examine the effectiveness of the EU’s commitment to prevent atrocity crimes as a member of the international community with the aim of identifying possible opportunities for improvement.
