Is the Human Rights Cause Making Headway?

Aryeh Neier, founder of Human Rights Watch and a long-time advocate of human rights, explores the history of the international human rights movement since its inception in the late 1970s and outlines the its accomplishments and reversals. The human rights movement contributed to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end to the Cold War, and was a factor in the transformation of Latin America in the 1980s, Neier says. His recent lecture, titled "Is the Human Rights Cause Making Headway?," was part of the School of Social Work's Distinguished Visiting Scholars Series.
