The Elders, France and the Accountability, Coherence and Transparency (ACT) group at the UN have all called for voluntary restraint in the use of the veto by the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council in mass atrocity situations. Their proposals have received considerable attention in recent months. To further this debate, The Elders, the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect and the International Peace Institute will co-host a high-level panel discussion which will look at ways to improve the Security Council’s ability to prevent and halt the commission of mass atrocity crimes.

The European Union and the International Crisis Group are co-sponsoring an event that will gather a panel of experts to explore links between development and preventing violent extremism (PVE). This event will complement the Leaders’ Summit on Countering ISIL and Violent Extremism held earlier that day by examining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 2030 Agenda, and how they relate to addressing the factors that lead to radicalisation and the growing threat of violent extremism.
The event will provide a unique forum to bring together different communities, including development, diplomatic, and security stakeholders, to discuss the relationship between these critical issues. Invited speakers include representatives from the World Bank, Mercy Corps, the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Conflict Prevention and Crisis Management in the 21st Century
London, 16 November
The changing crisis environment in which Europe finds itself has raised urgent questions about the continent’s ability to manage an array of new challenges. With turbulent peripheries in both its east and south, and a complex set of internal challenges, Europe finds itself in an environment arguably more fraught than any experienced in over a generation. Crisis Group and Chatham House are collaborating to convene a one-day forum which will explore the nature of a number of current crises confronting Europe, while assessing its capacity to respond effectively in addressing them.
