Roundtable on Conflict Prevention and the Responsibility to Protect

As part of its Task Forces on Strengthening Multilateral Security Capacity, IPI convened a roundtable discussion of conflict prevention and the responsibility to protect (RtoP) at the Trygve Lie Center for Peace, Security, and Development. It was the fourth and final roundtable of Task Force Two on Inter- and Intra-state Armed Conflict. Participants discussed the institutional and policy shortcomings related to conflict prevention and RtoP and the potential strategies to address them. The two-day roundtable, which began with a general discussion on conflict prevention and RtoP, closed with the development of ideas for action to improve multilateral efforts in the future.
