17 May 2021

GRC is delighted to host a digital symposium with Opinio Juris on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2417 (UNSC 2417) to mark the third anniversary of its adoption by the Security Council. The symposium is scheduled to run between 17-21 May and features written think pieces from the World Food Programme, GRC, Mwatana for Human Rights, Alex de Waal, Chris Newton, Yousuf Syed Khan, Jared Miller and Emanuela-Chiara Gillard.

 

In the symposium’s introductory post, GRC recognises UNSC 2417’s utility to date and stresses the need to strengthen its preventative, prohibitive and accountability powers and reflect on its successes and weaknesses.

 

The symposium promises to be a vital and timely discussion ahead of the Protection of Civilians Week.
