    The Institute for Human Security: "R2P's Unfinished Journey: the Lingering Promise of Prevention"

    5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

    In 2005 Responsibility to Protect was unanimously endorsed by the world’s heads of state and government meeting at the UN’s 60th Anniversary World Summit. Paragraphs 138 and 139 of the World Summit Outcome Document embodied the emerging consensus on the international community's responsibility to prevent and protect populations from genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. The 2005 pledge raised expectations, but has so far failed to deliver on the promises of prevention and protection. Against the backdrop of the experiences of Libya, Cote d’Ivoire and Syria, Dr. Monica Serrano will discuss the challenges faced by R2P, and introduce her recent publication, The International Politics of Human Rights. Rallying to the R2P Cause?, eds. Monica Serrano and Thomas G Weiss, (Routledge 2014).

    7:45 AM – 7:00 PM

    Building on the success of our inaugural meeting in 2013, the objective of this year’s event is to examine the burgeoning gap between global infrastructure needs and funding sources and the role of sovereign wealth funds, government pension funds, and other institutional investors in bridging that gap. We will gather representatives from the institutional investor community together with policy makers, service providers, academics, and public sector partners from recipient countries to explore the scale and progress of global infrastructure funding in both developed and emerging economies, the critical challenges to institutional investment in infrastructure, and the innovations that have supported the rise of global infrastructure as an evolving asset class.

    Conference: "Thinking About Think Tanks"

    8:30 AM – 5:30 PM

    Think tanks have been a vital cog in the American foreign policy machine, functioning as both a generator and sounding board for new ideas. The evolution of think tanks, reflecting deeper trends in American society over the past few decades, raises some interesting questions about whether they can continue to play such a role. Has the marketplace of ideas changed, and have think tanks adapted to that change? Has political polarization shunted foreign policy expertise aside? What role do funders play in influencing the output of think tanks? What is the relationship between the academy and think tanks?
