21 October 2014 at World Bank Headquarters, Washington DC
In the framework of the Law, Justice and Development (LJD) Week 2014: Financing and Implementing the Post-2015 Development Agenda held at the World Bank headquarters in Washington DC, Enzo Maria Le Fevre Cervini, ECIA Fellow, participate to the session “Private Sector, Foundations and Mass Atrocity Prevention: Best Practices and the Way Ahead”. The private sector is often named as the “missing actor” in the implementation of the Responsibility to Protect (RtoP). This session aims at shedding light on current best practices within the private sector, with the final objective of facilitating the socialization of private actors within the RtoP community. The event is sponsored by the World Bank Group, and delivered in collaboration with the Global Forum on Law, Justice and Development, a collaboration that includes more than 150 global institutions. Each year, LJD Week brings together a high-level group of experts interested in the legal and justice dimensions of development. Attendees include the General Counsels of the world’s development finance institutions, political leaders and officials from many countries, development professionals, lawyers, judges and civil society actors. Last year’s event attracted more than 2,000 participants.
