CIS Starr Forum: Don't Be an American Idiot

Don't Be an American Idiot
How does the U.S. use human rights in its foreign policy?
Does the occupant of the White House matter when it comes to U.S. human interests abroad? What is the role of civil society in making human rights matter?
Julie Mertus co-director of Ethics, Peace and Global Affairs Program, American University and award-winning author of Bait and Switch: Human Rights and U.S. Foreign Policy reflects on these questions and invites discussion on their importance in an election year.
