On 18 May 2021, following the annual UN General Assembly debate on R2P, member states voted to adopt Resolution 75/L.82 on “The responsibility to protect and the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.”
This was the first resolution on R2P adopted in the General Assembly since 2009.
Within the resolution the General Assembly decided to include an item on R2P in its annual agenda and requested that the Secretary-General reports annually on the topic.
