U.S. Ambassador for the Human Rights Measurement Initiative
I am currently serving as U.S. Ambassador for the Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI). HRMI is filling the gap between monitoring and ensuring human rights by producing a metrics database that summarizes every country's human rights performance. As HRMI’s U.S. Ambassador, I work with human rights advocates, including lawyers and journalists, to provide metrics covering the full range of human rights in the U.S. If you are a human rights advocate – such as an NGO researcher, human rights lawyer, journalist who reports on human rights, or staff at the National Human Rights Institute – please contribute your time by taking our survey about these metrics. If you are interested in taking the survey, please contact me via email and I will forward you the registration. Together, we can do the valuable work of monitoring human rights in the U.S.
Since 2016, I have been involved in an international reconciliation project between veterans of the Yugoslav Wars. As a consultant, I have organized and facilitated talks between leaders of the largest veteran organizations in Serbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and helped build a team of fellow advocates and experts on reconciliation and healing, including U.S. veterans of the Vietnam War.
Domestic Violence Intervention
Domestic violence is one of the most damaging forms of violence that is linked to numerous societal problems. To address this problem, I am engaged in studies with colleagues from the University of Connecticut to diminish the prevalence of domestic violence and improve interventions.
