This article focuses on human rights policies under President Obama. It introduces the topic by outlining some of the praise for and criticisms against Obama’s human rights policies since he has been in office. This article then illuminates three major questions that are currently being debated: if the Obama administration is deemphasizing human rights in US foreign policy, if the Obama administration is reducing US support for democratization in other countries, and whether or not President Obama was right to have the United States join the United Nations Human Rights Council. Next, it discusses the history of human rights both as it developed in the United States and abroad as a policy topic, human rights commitments made by the United States throughout the twentieth century, and support for and criticisms against former President Bush’s human rights policies. Lastly, this article touches upon some current situations in US support for human rights, including policies affecting Sudan, Guinea, and Syria, and the status of human rights treaties in the United States.

  1. Is global freedom increasing or decreasing? What are some of the developments influencing this increase or decrease? Where in the world are “not free” countries concentrated?
  2. What does the Obama administration appear to be basing its human rights policies on? Do human rights experts think this approach is effective? Why or why not?
  3. What is the freedom of expression resolution? What does it signal about US human rights policy?
  4. Which two human rights treaties are pending ratification by the United States? Why do social conservatives in the United States oppose these treaties?
