Is America Pushing Human Rights to the Side?

Interview with Matthew Duss. Duss: “I think the president campaigned in a way that many progressives like myself were encouraged by. He highlighted human rights. He said that under his administration human rights would be back on the foreign-policy agenda. Those are things that are important to progressives. They’re important to a lot of Americans. But beyond the rhetorical, at least as I see it, they have struggled to really actualize that in their policy. It’s understandable they’ve been confronted with crises literally since the moment that they took office. But I think that’s true of a lot of administrations.” (06/22/22)
