Human rights and foreign policy in the US: the role of government

Inspired by U.S. Congressional initiatives in the 1970’s which made human rights an integral part of the foreign policy of the US, the American Association for the ICJ has helped arrange a series of fora over the last eight years for bilateral exchanges of view on this key issue.

This report contains the précis of the two most recent meetings in this continuing effort held in London (1983) and Paris (1984) on “The Role of Government in the Implementation of Human Rights Considerations in Foreign Policy.”
