Human right promotion has been an important factor in U.S. foreign policy for generations - and especially in the years following World War II. But what is meant by “human rights” and how do we decide which situations warrant intervention and which ones do not? What are shining examples of successful policies based on the promotion of human rights and how should we view policies couched in human rights that resulted in worse regimes coming to power? We discuss this all with former Clinton administration official and columnist Larry Haas, author of “Sound the Trumpet: The United States and Human Rights Promotion”. Haas also answers concerns that our active foreign policy is responsible for some of our descent into debt and that the rest of the world does not view human rights the same way we do.
