Dear colleague, United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recently published his fifthannual report on the Responsibility to Protect (R2P), entitled
 State Responsibilityand Prevention
. The report emphasizes measures that individual states canundertake to strengthen their capacity to prevent mass atrocity crimes.The report identifies six risk factors for mass atrocity crimes and lists preventivepolicy options that states can adopt in order to uphold their Responsibility toProtect. These options are described within four broad categories: buildingnational resilience, promoting and protecting human rights, adopting targetedmeasures to prevent atrocity crimes and building partnerships for prevention. While highlighting that there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to atrocity prevention, the Secretary-General’s report provides numerous examples of stepsthat various Member States have undertaken within each of these categories. Thereport concludes with seven measures that states can implement in order toprevent atrocity crimes, including conducting a national assessment of risk andresilience and appointing a senior-level R2P Focal Point.The Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect hopes that the Secretary-General’s report helps Member States to engage in a fruitful conversation duringthe UN General Assembly’s Informal Interactive Dialogue on the Responsibility toProtect on 11 September.
