"Can the U.S. Lead on Human Rights in the 21st Century?"
What do U.S. policy and U.S. actions on human rights look like in the 21st century? Does the U.S. possess the means to meaningfully protect human rights in such places as China, Russia, and the Middle East? Does the U.S. have the moral standing to intervene around the world in support of human rights? What is the U.S. role right now? What could it be?
Bogert studies human rights in the U.S. and abroad and media coverage of protest and human rights issues. Bogert is the 2014 Woodrow Wilson Visiting Fellow.
