International Law, Here and There

posted in Danielle Moore

In America, we take for granted that we are the “land of the free.” There are scores of people who believe that there is nothing more liberating than being an American citizen, and almost cannot fathom that there are groups of people who are marginalized and even lack basic human rights.
