The roundtable was the seventh in a series of consultations organised to build a global NonGovernmental Organisation (NGO) network on the responsibility to protect (R2P) norm. The roundtable group comprised about 46 participants from NGOs, Community Based Organisations (CBOs), and sub-regional civil society networks. Representatives from national governments and intergovernmental agencies also participated in the consultation. The goal of the roundtable was to discuss and deliberate on the progress of implementing R2P and its implications in West Africa.
