Case 165 - Human Rights and Foreign Policy: What the Kurds Learned (A Drama in One Act)
Farer, Tom J.
This case study, created for the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs, is set in 1992, on the eve of President George H.W. Bush’s last State of the Union address. It presents a hypothetical conference involving senior officials from the departments of State, Treasury, and Defense, and the Central Intelligence Agency, together with several members of the National Security Council. Their task: to establish the parameters for an enhanced human rights program that President Bush can unveil during his address. Their discussion could effectively be presented as a classroom simulation.
