10:00 AM        (DHLA) "Mainstreaiming the responsability to protect in Southeast Asia: Pathway towards a caring Asean community".
Organized by the Office on Genocide Prevention and the Responsibility to Protect.
In 2013, Mr. Adama Dieng, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations and Special Advisor to the Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide wrote to Dr. Surin Pitsuwan, former Secretary-General of ASEAN, requesting advice on the steps that might be taken to promote the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. Recognizing the 2005 commitment made by ASEAN Member states, and mindful of the on-going multi-track efforts in the region aimed at promoting the goals of the Responsibility to Protect, in April 2013 Dr. Surin convened a small group of eminent persons to establish a High Level Advisory Panel on the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia.
The main objective of the High Level Advisory Panel is to support efforts to promote the Responsibility to Protect and to contribute further to its implementation in the ASEAN region. By presenting analysis and recommendations, the Panel aims to contribute ideas for the strengthening of regional capacity to prevent genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity and protect the peoples of Southeast Asia from these crimes, thereby mainstreaming the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia.
It is against this background that the Report now being presented was prepared. It reflects the deliberations of the panel’s members on the kinds of challenges faced by states and non-state actors in mainstreaming the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. In addressing these challenges, the Report pays particular attention to the role of ASEAN in supporting the prevention of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.
