Japan and 15 years of 'Responsibility to Protect': Tackling a Shared Humanitarian Crisis

2017-1-15 (Sun) 13:00 - 17:30

The OSIPP Inamori Foundation Endowed Chair will be holding a symposium entitled "Japan and 15 years of 'Responsibility to Protect': Tackling a Shared Humanitarian Crisis." Anyone can join this lecture, so please feel free to attend.

It's been 15 years since the proposal of the "Responsibility to Protect" in December of 2001. In this span, debates have raged in international society, but in Japan, humanitarian crises and refugee problems, not to mention humanitarian intervention, are still "someone else's problem," and thus have not been greatly discussed. But on the other hand, there is no mistaking that humanitarian crises are shared crises within our society. In actuality, there are some Japanese people who have faced these crises. At this symposium, we'll hold a talk with Edward Luck, former UN Special Advisor to the Responsibility to Protect who greatly contributed to the development of the concept of "Responsibility to Protect," and examine endeavors by Japan regarding these shared crises through discussions with Japanese researchers and business people.

Date: 2017-1-15 (Sun) 13:00 - 17:30
Venue: SAJI Keizo Memorial Hall, 10F, Osaka University Nakanoshima Center
