Strengthening the prevention of atrocity crimes and the protection of vulnerable communities in the Asia Pacific

For over 10 years, the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect has engaged with partners across the region to protect vulnerable communities from atrocity crimes. Funded by The University of Queensland and the Australian Government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Centre works to develop regional expertise on atrocity prevention and establish links between regional and global institutions.
