The U.S. State Department's new Commission on Unalienable Rights convened for the first time in late October. Following the first meeting, the Center for American Progress raised five critical questions about the Commission and its agenda.
The Columbia Human Rights Law Review On-line is running a series of commentary on the Commission. The first, by Risa Kaufman, Director of US Human Rights at the Center for Reproductive Rights, is here. The second, written by JoAnn Kamuf Ward (Columbia HR Institute) and Catherine Flowers (Center for Rural Enterprise and Environmental Justice), is available here. The first two meetings of the Commission were noticed in the Federal Register, which also described the agenda for the meetings.
