“Human Rights Protection & International Law: The Multifaceted Dilemma of Restraining and Promoting International Interventions”
(Reykjavik, Iceland; April 10th – 13th, 2013; Co-hosted by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy & Ministry of Interior of Iceland)
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.
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.
Speakers during the Conference will include leading figures and experts from international politics, economics, academia, diplomacy, civil society, and the private sector. The speakers will also include a number of individuals from the ICD Advisory Board. For further information on the ICD Advisory Board, please click here.
