FR-Mandate

The Canadian Centre for the Responsibility to Protect (CCR2P) is Canada's leading non-profit and non-partisan research organization which aims to promote scholarly engagement and political implementation of the R2P principle.

The Responsibility to Protect, also referred to as RtoP or R2P, is a newly emerging norm coined in 2001 and later adopted by 150 states at the 2005 World Summit, which maintains that when sovereign states are unable or unwilling to fulfill their responsibility to protect their own populations from genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes and crimes against humanity, the international community has the responsibility to do so.

Based at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, the CCR2P has ten core mandates:

1) To conduct research on the normative, legal and policy dimensions of the R2P principle and any other pertinent concepts;
2) To trace the evolution of the Canadian government’s policies with regards to the R2P principle and advocate for timely implementation of R2P principle in Canadian foreign policy;
3) To serve as a hub for information, research and analyses on R2P through our online database;
4) To provide timely and multilingual data on a real-time basis online through the R2Plive.org project;
5) To collaborate with other research institutes and civil society groups working on R2P for national and regional prevention and response mechanisms;
6) To nurture the young minds (high school & undergrads) through annual educational outreach and various social media platforms;
7) To create a national and global network of R2P scholars (consisting of Junior Fellows & Senior Fellows) and foster intellectual engagements on R2P;
8) To communicate its R2P-related findings with the academic community, political actors, civil society groups and the general public on a regular basis (print and online media);
9) To provide a forum for public discussion and debates on R2P through educational workshops and annual symposium; and
10) To be ready to engage with, and to offer consultations to, governmental and inter-governmental agencies for strategically implementing R2P in the policy-making process.

While R2P today still remains “a concept, not yet a policy,” the co-founders of the CCR2P hope that rigorous research and policy recommendations from the CCR2P will help take a step closer to the political implementation of the R2P in light of on-going crises around the world.

      « Le Centre Canadien pour la Responsabilité de Protéger (CCRP) est une société de recherche à but non-lucratif et non-partisane visant à promouvoir l’engagement académique et la mise en œuvre politique du principe de Responsabilité de Protéger. La Responsabilité de Protéger, établie en 2001, est une nouvelle norme internationale adoptée par 150 états lors du Sommet mondial de 2005. Celle-ci met de l’avant l’importance pour la communauté internationale d’intervenir lorsqu’un état souverain est dans l’incapacité ou refuserait d’agir afin de protéger ses citoyens face au génocide, au nettoyage ethnique, aux crimes de guerre et crimes contre l’humanité.

Basé à la Munk School of Global Affairs de l’Université de Toronto, le CCRP s’engage aux dix principaux mandats suivants :

1)      Effectuer des recherches sur les dimensions normatives, légales et politiques du principe de Responsabilité de Protéger ;

2)      Retracer l’évolution des politiques gouvernementales canadiennes en rapport avec le principe de Responsabilité de Protéger, et préconiser la mise en œuvre de ce principe dans un délai convenable lorsqu’il s’agit de politique étrangère canadienne ;

3)      Servir de plateforme d’information, de recherche et d’étude sur la Responsabilité de Protéger par l’intermédiaire d’une base de données en ligne ;

4)      Fournir rapidement des données multilingues concernant la Responsabilité de Protéger par l’entremise du projet R2Plive.org;

5)      Collaborer avec d’autres instituts de recherche et avec la société civile afin d’améliorer les mécanismes de réponses et de prévention, tant à l’échelle nationale que régionale ;

6)      Soutenir l’apprentissage des jeunes avec l’aide de la trousse pédagogique sur la Responsabilité de Protéger, de notre programme de sensibilisation, ainsi que par l’entremise de médias sociaux tels que Twitter et YouTube ;

7)      Créer un réseau national et international réunissant des spécialistes et des universitaires pour promouvoir l’engagement intellectuel portant sur la Responsabilité de Protéger ;

8)      Communiquer l’état des recherches sur la norme de la Responsabilité de Protéger avec la communauté académique, les acteurs de la scène politique, les groupes d’action de la société civile ainsi qu’avec le grand public ;

9)      Offrir un forum de discussion multidisciplinaire ayant pour but d’inciter le public à discuter et à débattre sur la question de la Responsabilité de Protéger durant notre symposium annuel ;

10)    S’engager à offrir des services de consultation auprès d’agences gouvernementales et inter-gouvernementales dans le but d’implémenter la norme de la Responsabilité de Protéger de manière stratégique dans le processus politique décisionnel. 

 

Même si la Responsabilité de Protéger reste, pour l’instant, « un concept plutôt qu’une pratique », les cofondateurs du Centre croient fermement que des recherches et recommandations adéquates et rigoureuses assureront l’éventuelle réussite et la mise en œuvre politique de la Responsabilité de Protéger. »
