U.S. Official Discusses U.S. Efforts To Promote Global Human Rights

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: Charting a New Path to Promote Global Human Rights
Kevin E. Moley, assistant secretary of state in the Bureau of International Organization Affairs at the State Department, discusses the U.S. stance on human rights, writing, “[T]hese past weeks have marked an important point of departure for the United States. Far from signaling a diminished role in promoting human rights, our withdrawal from the [U.N.] Human Rights Council, coupled with the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, makes clear the U.S. intent to invigorate its global leadership on fundamental rights and freedoms” (8/8).
