In 2005, the United States and all other member states of the United Nations agreed that nations share a responsibility to protect their citizens from genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and ethnic cleansing.
The international community’s record in upholding this responsibility is mixed. In light of new research by the Working Group on the Responsibility to Protect—a joint project of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the US Institute of Peace, and the Brookings Institution—we present, with 92nd Street Y, a program asking what steps are necessary to realize the vision of “never again.”
