U.S. Human Rights Policy: Rhetoric & Practice
Program #CHON144. Recorded in Longmont, CO on May 10, 1998.
December 10, 1998 marked the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It is the seminal human rights document. The U.S. stresses human rights in its foreign policy; however, its application is selective. Abuses in, say, Saudi Arabia, are ignored, while those in Cuba are the focus of much attention. In October 1997, Amnesty International issued a report charging the U.S. criminal justice system with "a persistent and widespread pattern of human rights violations."
