Temporary Reprieve for Rohingya Refugees Facing Repatriation
Today the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect celebrates the World Day for International Justice. Holding perpetrators of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes accountable for their actions plays an essential role in delivering justice for victims of mass atrocity crimes and preventing their recurrence. Every state, and the international community as a whole, has a role to play in this historic battle against impunity.
The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect welcomes the leadership shown by members of the UN Security Council in voting to put the human rights situation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) on the Council’s formal agenda. The DPRK government bears the primary Responsibility to Protect (R2P) its population from crimes against humanity, but is manifestly failing to do so.
