Melanesian Spearhead Group and APR2P Workshop on Atrocity Prevention and R2P

19 Sep 2023

Read the Spotlight from APR2P’s action-packed week in Vanuatu during #MACFest 2023, with the regional launch of the Framework for Action on R2P hosted by the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG), and speeches from the Special Advisor on R2P George Okoth-Obbo, Australia’s High Commissioner to Vanuatu, Heidi Bootle, and MSG Secretariat Director General, Leonard Louma.

The inaugural MSG-APR2P workshop in Vanuatu achieved significant outcomes, with a reaffirmed commitment to R2P, and follow up actions including inter-agency consultations and further capacity building on atrocity prevention among MSG members. Talanoa with women human rights defenders on gender discrimination and women’s rights, co-hosted with Vanuatu Human Rights Coalition led to further Vila dialogues in planning.
