Human Rights Briefings
These issue briefings are commissioned by the SfAA’s Human Rights and Social Justice Committee in an effort to educate our members, our students, and the general public on timely matters relating to social justice or human rights. It is the hope that policymakers, media, and the general public will come to appreciate an anthropological perspective on contemporary issues.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, the findings, interpretations and conclusions expressed in the briefings on this site do not necessarily represent the views of the Society for Applied Anthopology. Alternative views may be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
