Second Annual Meeting of the Network of National R2P Focal Points

On 29 September 2012 the governments of Australia, Costa Rica, Denmark and Ghana, in association with the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, co-hosted the second annual meeting of the network of national R2P Focal Points. The meeting was successful in bringing together representatives of 36 countries from around the globe. The timing of the meeting, a day after the annual Ministerial Meeting on the Responsibility to Protect (R2P), was extremely useful in ensuring high–level representation from participating member states and reflected the commitment expressed by ministers the previous day on the effective operationalization of R2P.
