Bernard Kouchner is the founder of both Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and Médecins du Monde. From 2007 until 2010, he was the French Minister of Foreign and European Affairs in the center-right Fillon government under president Nicolas Sarkozy, although he had been in the past a minister in socialist governments. In 2010, the Jerusalem Post named Bernard Kouchner the 15th most influential Jew in the world. Since 2015 Kouchner is workstream leader for the AMU (Agency for the Modernisation of Ukraine).
In 2008, investigative journalist Pierre Péan wrote The World According to K, which alleged that there were ties between Kouchner (then the French foreign minister) and African dictators. Péan claimed two consultancies run by associates of Kouchner were paid nearly $6m by the governments of Gabon and Congo for reports that were written by him.
