Expert Voices on Atrocity Prevention is a podcast by the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. The podcast, hosted by Global Centre Research Director Jaclyn Streitfeld-Hall, features one-on-one conversations with practitioners from the field of human rights, conflict prevention, atrocity prevention and other related agendas. These conversations aim to provide a glimpse of the personal and professional side of how practitioners approach human rights protection and atrocity prevention. New episodes are released every second Friday of the month. The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, SoundCloud and YouTube. Please subscribe for new episodes.
In this special episode, the Global Centre team answers questions we frequently receive from our followers and colleagues to clarify common misconceptions about the Responsibility to Protect (R2P). During this episode, we discuss how the international community continues to encounter difficulties when confronting mass atrocity crimes and protracted conflicts around the world. The Global Centre team also examines the international legal framework of the four mass atrocity crimes that R2P aims to prevent, as well as the important role of justice mechanisms to end impunity. We conclude the episode by exchanging perspectives on how others can get more involved in atrocity prevention.
