answer text <p>The British Government’s global network of embassies, strong international partnerships, and early warning mechanisms give the UK significant insight into emerging threats. The UK remains committed to the Responsibility to Protect and seeks to respond to developing threats of atrocity crimes or genocide including through prevention projects, sanctions regimes or support for justice systems. Our seat on the UN Security Council also means we swiftly engage where a threat of such crimes emerges. Where prevention has failed, it is the international community's responsibility to take collective action, through diplomatic, humanitarian and other means. Where necessary, the UN Security Council should be ready to authorise coercive measures under Chapter VII of the UN Charter.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Ensuring a well-functioning Gibraltar-Spain border is a key objective for the UK Government. A well-functioning border is also in the interests of the surrounding Spanish region, including the thousands of Spanish workers who cross the border every day. As the Prime Minister said in her statement to the House of Commons on 29 March, we are absolutely steadfast in our support of Gibraltar, its people and its economy.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Conflict, Security and Stability Fund (CSSF) provides direct funding to both the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect and the joint UN office of the Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide and the Special Adviser on the Responsibility to Protect. This funding assists these organisations in their work to consolidate the concept of the Responsibility to Protect by continuing to build the institutional architecture to prevent mass atrocity crimes and to strengthen the capacity of countries, regional and sub-regional organisations and civil society to protect populations. In addition, the CSSF funds a wide range of activities regionally that, while not always explicitly labelled as atrocity prevention, nonetheless contribute to the prevention of atrocities. These include projects on preventing sexual violence, reducing intergroup tensions, strengthening justice systems and the rule of law, security sector reform, disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Turkish Government have said that over 300,000 people have fled their homes in the region. Our thoughts are with the victims of the PKK terrorist attacks, and the civilians who have been caught up in the violence. The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), and the Minister for Europe, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Aylesbury (Mr Lidington), and our Ambassador to Turkey, have discussed with the Turkish government the importance of respecting human rights and avoiding civilian casualties in the fight against terrorism. We believe the first responsibility for investigating any alleged violations falls to Turkey; and that the PKK needs to cease violence in order to create the conditions for political resolution of the difficulties in the south east.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The British Government produces an annual internal risk report on fragile states called Countries at Risk of Instability (CRI). The report is used to help policy makers prioritise countries for Government engagement and ensure that policy responses are best placed to tackle evolving instability risks. As part of the CRI process, indicators that highlight a higher risk of mass atrocities occurring are used, such as levels of internal state repression, levels of inter-communal factionalism and the type of regime a country operates. The reports indicator set reflects best practice from many similar non-governmental organisations and partner governments approaches. Data is collected from a wide range of sources, including academia and Government subject matter expertise. The report is produced by the Cabinet Office and coordinates input from all relevant government departments and agencies.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
