In collaboration with the Aronson Center for International Studies and Second Decade Society:
After graduating from Yale University, Ambassador Samantha Power began her career in foreign politics as a war correspondent, covering the violence in Yugoslavia between 1993 and 1996. Upon returning to the United States, Power received a law degree from Harvard University and joined the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy as a Founding Director. Her first book, A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide, was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Non-Fiction in 2003 and railed against the political establishment for its “toleration of unspeakable atrocities, often committed in clear view.” Power served as the US Ambassador to the United Nations from 2013 to 2017 under the Obama administration, during which she played a key role in shaping international humanitarian intervention. She has been named one of the world’s most influential figures by both Time and Forbes.
