Ambassador Holbrooke: Diplomatic Relationships Key to Stem Crises

Vali Nasr, Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies: The larger lesson from the late Amb. Richard Holbrooke is that diplomatic relationships, both personal and government-to-government, are key in providing avenues to getting involved early to stem a tide of crisis. A strong international commitment to the prevention of genocide and mass atrocities was a central theme of the late Ambassador Richard Holbrooke's life and work. Last month, the Obama administration created an Atrocities Prevention Board, citing the prevention of mass atrocities and genocide as both a core national security interest and moral responsibility of the United States. On May 22, the Brookings Institution, in collaboration with the Central European University School of Public Policy and International Affairs, hosted a discussion on U.S. and international efforts to prevent genocide and mass atrocities, building on Ambassador Holbrooke's legacy.
