The Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights
“Human Rights Protection & International Law: The Multifaceted
Dilemma of Restraining and Promoting International Interventions”
Co-hosted by the Institute for Cultural Diplomacy & Ministry of Interior of Iceland
(Reykjavik, Iceland; April 10th – 13th, 2013)
The ICD Foundation for Human Rights and Global Development | The Reykjavík Congress on Human Rights
The international community acknowledges the increasing and persistent cases of mass
atrocities and crimes against humanity occurring on a vast scale.
Understanding the complexity in bringing these crimes to an end, the Reykjavík Congress on
Human Rights aims to argue and debate the notion of the responsibility to protect from a
human rights perspective, taking into account the divergent dimensions in restraining or
promoting international intervention.
Through the discussions and exchange of this conference, we aim to consider the current
most vehement cases of human rights violations, and further comprehend the varied issues
and approaches to these mass atrocities and crimes against humanity from a theoretical
perspective, analyzing the complex layers and structures, and taking into account the ethical
dilemma surrounding the responsibility to protect and international intervention.
The 2013 Congress will create and publish a discussion document that will be presented to
the international community on how to overcome the dilemma of restraining and promoting all
forms of International Interventions based on coordinated global coalition efforts between
governments, NGOs, and International Institutions.
The Congress will focus in particular on the following Issues:
Humanitarian Crisis - This section of the conference will serve as an introduction to current
and most pressing cases of crimes against humanity, considering the role of race and
ethnicity throughout. The examples covered will include a focus on escalated mass atrocities
during wartime such as in contemporary Mali, the ongoing and systematic violence in Darfur,
an analysis of gender based violence as a form of genocide and finally the international focal
point for crimes against humanity such as in Syria.
The UN Genocide Convention & R2P - Following the in-depth discourse on current cases of
human rights crisis areas, this section of the conference will focus on the ethical dilemma of
foreign interventions. The conference aims to achieve an outline of innovative solutions for
how to overcome the dilemma of foreign intervention based on coordinated global coalition
efforts between governments, NGOs and International Institutions.
