As the world continues to navigate a global pandemic, we have observed human rights issues manifest and evolve in a variety of ways. Solutions to these issues must consider and integrate the complexity and diversity reflected in the people who experience them. This issue of the Human Rights Brief offers nuanced and critical analyses of the ways in which states perpetuate systematic human rights abuses through politics, judicial systems, and foreign policies. Through this issue, we seek to highlight enduring and emergent human rights issues, while exploring solutions to end cycles of violence, abuse, and deprivation of rights and to empower affected persons.
We want to thank our dedicated staff of writers, editors, podcast producers, communications specialists, and symposium producers for their incredible work on this issue. This diverse group of students allows us to curate culturally competent and creative legal arguments that aim to reimagine human rights both locally and globally. Finally, as our reader, we want to thank you for your continued support in our quest as a publication to provide insightful commentary and explore new solutions to global human rights issues.
