U.N. Dispatch: The United States is Quitting the U.N. Human Rights Council. Here’s Why That’s a Bad Idea
Mark Leon Goldberg, editor of U.N. Dispatch, examines the recent voluntary withdrawal of the U.S. from the U.N. Human Rights Council, discussing the U.S. government’s role in the council over the years, as well as the implications of its withdrawal. Goldberg concludes, “The United States doesn’t stand to gain much from leaving the Human Rights Council and the Trump administration is committing yet another unforced error by ceding this platform for upholding human rights around the world” (6/19).
