Description

This volume is part of a Foreign Relations subseries that documents the most important issues in the foreign policy of Jimmy Carter's administration. It illustrates the Carter administration’s efforts to define and implement a broad-based human rights policy, including the establishment of the Bureau of Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs within the Department of State, the creation of human rights coordinating and review groups, issuance of a Presidential Directive on human rights, institutionalization and standardization of human rights reporting, and the pursuit of human rights within the United Nations and other multilateral venues.

The volume also documents steps undertaken by the Carter administration to fight hunger, launch a global health initiative, and advocate for women’s rights. This volume was compiled and edited by Kristin L. Ahlberg.
