India's Nirupam Sen, UN Ambassador & Adviser on R2P, Leaves Legacy, Questioned P5

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, July 2 – India's former Ambassador to the UN Nirupam Sen, who also served as an advisor to President of the General Assembly Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, has died in New Delhi, at 70.

Sen succeeded Vijay Nambiar as Indian Ambassador, and pushed back at Nambiar's suggestion the country had not done enough to gain a Permanent Seat on the UN Security Council. He rejected a published report that Canada went around him to get India to not block Responsibility to Protect at the UN.

To Inner City Press, Sen explained his position on R2P as related to the Permanent Five members' unwillingness to constrain their use of the veto in the Council and "eliminate the strategic imperatives of any great power." He has a legacy; this is a part of it. Rest in peace.
