How can supporters best promote the principle of Responsibility to Protect in Asia over the next 10 years, particularly in the campaign to prevent sexual violence in conflict?
If you are an Australian university student and can answer this question in 800 words, you may be in for a scholarship to attend the 'Responsibility to Protect at 10 in the Asia-Pacific’ conference in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on 26-27 February 2015.
Next year is the 10-year anniversary of the unanimous adoption of the principle of Responsibility to Protect (R2P) at the UN World Summit. To mark the occasion, the British High Commission in Canberra will sponsor an Australian university student to travel to and participate in the conference.
The sponsorship covers travel, accommodation and living costs for both the pre-conference trip to Canberra and the conference itself.
The competition is open to Australian university students. Submissions close on Sunday 14 December.
The succesful candidate will be invited to Canberra in late January for a day of R2P conversation before he or she travels to Phnom Penh in late February.
