Malaysia houses one of the Asia Pacific Centre for the Responsibility to Protect's (APR2P) emerging country programs in Southeast Asia. Since elected to the UN Security Council in 2015, Malaysia has shown itself to be supportive of R2P, voting in favour of several resolutions affirming the principle. APR2P works closely with a variety of think tanks, academic institutions and government officials from Malaysia, who have participated in regional dialogue hosted by APR2P, including the 2014 Workshop on ASEAN and the Prevention of Violence Against Women in Conflict held in Jakarta. Malaysia has also hosted several events focused on the promotion of R2P implementation in Southeast Asia. The prominent Malaysian journalist and social commentator, Marina Mahathir, serves on the High Level Advisory Panel on the Responsibility to Protect in Southeast Asia. APR2P plans to significantly expand its work in Malaysia over the coming two years.
