This roundtable discussion with visiting scholar John Hursh will examine human rights and humanitarian action in the Middle East and North Africa, a region dominated by authoritarian political leaders and repressive governments. Assessed within the current U.S. and regional political dynamics, this discussion will explore how U.S. foreign policy can help strengthen human rights or contribute to human rights abuses, armed conflict, and humanitarian crises in the region. Undergraduate and graduate students interested in a career in human rights or the humanitarian sector are especially welcome.
