Ethical Policy Dilemmas in the Promotion of U.S. Human Rights Values
With Richard Solomon
Wednesday, May 27, 2009 06:00 PM to 07:30 PM
Human rights were foundational to the establishment of the United States. Since then, a recurring goal of U.S. foreign policy under different presidents has been the promotion of respect for human rights, as embodied in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
What are realistic processes of social change that should inform effective human rights policy and its implementation? Should human rights issues be pressed even if their primary effect is to assure domestic American constituencies that an administration's "heart is in the right place?" Are there conflicting values within the human rights paradigm?
USIP President Richard Solomon will focus on these questions and other dilemmas. Carnegie Council President Joel Rosenthal will host this session.
