Question of the Day
The New York Democrat appears more willing than her rivals to make use of the United Nations. On the campaign trail, she has promised to operationalize the principle that all nations have the responsibility to protect civilians when their own government cannot or will not.
In adopting the responsibility to protect, or R2P, as it is known, the United Nations accepted the principle that mass atrocities that take place in one state are the concern of all states, she said, adding that a Clinton administration would recognize the prevention of mass atrocities as a national security interest, not just a humanitarian goal.
