The Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights 2013 “Human Rights Protection & International Law: The Multifaceted Dilemma of Restraining and Promoting International Interventions”, un set su Flickr.
The international community acknowledges the increasing and persistent cases of mass atrocities and crimes against humanity occurring on a vast scale.
Understanding the complexity in bringing these crimes to an end, the Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights aims to argue and debate the notion of the responsibility to protect from a human rights perspective, taking into account the divergent dimensions in restraining or promoting international intervention.
Through the discussions and exchange of this congress we aim to consider the current most vehement cases of human rights violations, and further comprehend the varied issues and approaches to these mass atrocities and crimes against humanity from a theoretical perspective, analyzing the complex layers and structures, and taking into account the ethical dilemma surrounding the responsibility to protect and international intervention.
The 2013 Congress will create and publish a discussion document that will be presented to the international community on how to overcome the dilemma of restraining and promoting all forms of International Interventions based on coordinated global coalition efforts between governments, NGOs and International Institutions.
