The Education of an Idealist

On September 23, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power ’99 expressed both skepticism and hope for the current state of international affairs during a panel discussion at Harvard Law School about her new memoir, The Education of an Idealist.

Ambassador Power is currently teaching at Harvard as the William D. Zabel ’61 Professor of Practice in Human Rights at Harvard Law School, and the Anna Lindh Professor of the Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School.

Read about and watch the discussion on Harvard Law Today.

The event was sponsored by the Harvard Law School Library and International Legal Studies.
