Event description

Description

Former Australian Foreign Minister and Attorney-General Gareth Evans will reveal the core values of The Responsibility to Protect and set out how the international community must come together to protect people from genocide and other mass atrocity crimes.

Gareth is the current chancellor of ANU, the former President and CEO of the International Crisis Group, and currently chairs the New York based Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. As co-chair of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, he was a key contributor in developing the doctrine of The Responsibility to Protect in response to the catastrophes of Rwanda, Bosnia, and Kosovo. He has since published The Responsibility to Protect: Ending Mass Atrocity Crimes Once and for All(2008).'

Register now for this rare opportunity to hear one of Australia’s most experienced politicians and speakers set out what the international community can to do to protect populations against the mass abuse of human rights.

This is a free event as part of the Amnesty - ANU Law 2018 Speaker Series.



ANU Law Reform and Social Justice is an initiative of the ANU College of Law. In our teaching, research and community engagement, we explore law’s complex role in society, and the part that lawyers play in using and improving law to promote both social justice and social stability. Our dedicated student volunteers run projects that assist community legal centres, schools and the general community to gain better understanding and access to law and justice.
