Samantha Power Connection

In January 2009, Richard Cooper and Juliette Voïnov Kohler edited a book entitled "Responsibility to Protect: The Global Moral Compact for the 21st Century". The foreword for the book was written by Samantha Power, who that same month was appointed to the National Security Council, as director for multilateral affairs by President Barack Obama.[1]

Responsibility to Protect

As at March 28, 2011, Juliette Voinov Kohler served on the Advisory Board for Responsibility to Protect[2] The primary mission of the organization is to convince the American people and its leaders to embrace the norm of the responsibility to protect as a domestic and foreign policy priority. This "responsibility to protect" is defined by the organization as follows,[3]

"While sovereign Governments have the primary responsibility to protect their own citizens from such catastrophes, when they are unable or unwilling to do so that responsibility should be taken up by the wider international community ” with it spanning a continuum involving prevention, response to violence, if necessary, and rebuilding shattered societies."
