Ideal Illusions: How the U.S. Government Co-Opted Human Rights
This edition of the In Print series of The Center for Global Affairs at NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies was held at the Woolworth Building in New York City.
James Peck argues that while the U.S. gives lip service about caring for human rights around the world, the reality is that it has used the idea of preserving human rights as a tool to expand its global reach. He was interviewed by James Hoge and also responded to questions from members of the audience.
