Beth Stephens Associate Professor Rutgers School of Law - Camden 217 North Fifth Street Camden, NJ 08102 V: (856) 225-6384 F: (856) 225-6516 Biography Professor Stephens has published a variety of articles on the relationship between international and domestic law, focusing on the enforcement of international human rights norms through domestic courts. She co-authored a book analyzing U.S. enforcement of human rights norms, International Human Rights Litigation in U.S. Courts (Transnational Publishers, Inc. 1996). From 1990-1995, she was in charge of the international human rights docket at the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York, where she litigated a series of cases addressing human rights violations in countries around the world, including Bosnia, Guatemala, Haiti, East Timor and Ethiopia. In 1995, Prof. Stephens received the Trial Lawyers of the Year Award from Trial Lawyers for Public Justice in recognition of her work litigating international human rights claims. She was a finalist for the same award in 2001. As a cooperating attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights and a member of the Board of Directors of the Center for Justice and Accountability, Prof. Stephens continues to litigate human rights cases, including cases filed against U.S.- based corporations alleging responsibility for human rights violations committed in the course of their activities abroad.

Randy Ireson AFSC’s development programs seek to reduce people’s economic, social, political, and personal vulnerability. These programs create optimism for growth in urban and rural settings and in hostile and friendly governmental environments. Our programs are based on individuals’ experiences and aspirations. However, our role is to accompany—not “help”—a community as it seeks to improve peoples’ lives. Our methods include building trusting relationships that enable people to be more creative; strengthening capacity through training, organizing, and networking; using multiple approaches to achieve goals, providing long-term support to a group of people; and creating culturally appropriate institutions to sustain work. Here are some examples:
  • This year, COMAL —-an influential network of peasant farmers and cooperatives in Honduras—was “devolved” from AFSC and placed in the hands of a local, well-trained board. COMAL is part of a growing region-wide network responding to the Free Trade Area of the Americas proposal, the use of genetically modified organisms, and other aspects of globalization.
  • Haiti’s western Grand ’Anse faces rapid deforestation, as hungry families cut trees to make charcoal. AFSC staff help communities to plant tens of thousands of trees and learn conservation skills, even as Haiti’s political and economic crisis worsens.

Grand' Anse, Haiti The American Friends Service Committee, in partnership with European, Japanese and US organizations, supports economic development and health programs with people in the most impoverished communities of the rural sections of the western Grand' Anse Department. The guiding vision of AFSC programs in the Latin America and Caribbean is to promote basic rights for all people - civil, political, economic, cultural, and spiritual; equitable access to means of livelihood, with adequate shelter, food, clothing, education, and health care within a framework of sustainable economic development; effective participation in the structures of governance and decision-making; mechanisms for nonviolent and just resolution of conflict. To these ends the AFSC-Haiti program works to help community-based groups, primarily women's groups, organize better to improve their communities' social, health and economic conditions.
Violence, injustice, and anti-democratic processes mark the history of Haiti. Today per capita income is less than $100 and the majority of the families do not have access to potable water, sewage, and adequate health care. Illiteracy is also very high, affecting 85% of the population. This primarily rural population living off fishing and agriculture has become impoverished by the decay of the rural world due to bad land management, difficult climatic and topographic conditions, inappropriate agricultural techniques, the absence of crop storage infrastructure, and, even more fundamentally, the rapid forest depletion and the loss of the swine population in the beginning of the 1980s.

Draft version of article published at 19 pp.163-267 (Fall, 1990). ABSTRACT This paper will give a brief introduction to researching Latin American human rights literature. It will review two significant publications for research on human rights in Latin America and it will then discuss the general process of locating Latin American legal materials on human rights. A guide to the human rights mechanisms of the Organization of American States is followed by a brief introduction to the human rights organs of the United Nations. The paper concludes with three lists: 1) a bibliography of monographs and articles published since 1979, concerned with human rights in Latin America; 2) Latin American law collections in the United States; and 3) organizations concerned with human rights in Latin America. The Caribbean states are not covered.

Hugo Chavez, charismatic charlatan
Gwynne Dyer: Latin America continues to its individual beat
Thirty people are injured by a bomb in Bogota, in an incident that will become commonplace as Colombia's seemingly endless guerilla war moves into the cities. (Thanks, Irish Republican Army, for showing us how the pros do it. Before, we just massacred peasants in villages.)
Two-thirds of Argentina's population live in abject poverty a century after it was the world's most popular destination for emigrants hoping to better their lives. Then, per capita income in Argentina was US$2800 ($5389) a year, among the highest in the world. Now, it is down to US$2500 ($4812), just ahead of Bulgaria.
It is a reasonably safe bet that in 20 years, Bulgaria, scheduled to join the European Union in 2007, will have three times Argentina's average income.
Venezuela is into the third week of confrontation between the populist president, Hugo Chavez, re-elected by a landslide majority less than three years ago, and strikers in the state oil industry. The strikers have the backing of the old political elite and desperate middle-class Venezuelans who fear that Chavez's erratic attempts to do something for the poor majority will ruin what little is left of their own prosperity, and the battle may end up in the streets.
No other oil-rich country except Nigeria contrives to have such a huge gap between rich and poor.

    Special Briefing on the International Affairs Activities Budget
    Washington, DC, February 2, 1998 AMBASSADOR JOHNSTONE: Thank you very much, Jim. I'm here sporting two buttons today. The one which was given out this morning at the White House, representing the fact that this is the first budget that we have submitted in 30 years that has no addition to the deficit; hence the big zero. But I don't want to confuse you, but on the other side there's one that says 1 percent, which is a reiteration of the fact that we cost only 1 percent of the federal budget for all the things that we get done in international affairs. I wanted to start today by saying, first and foremost, that Secretary Albright and I worked last week to prepare her to give the opening statement here; and I know that she would have wanted to be here if she could. But alas, as you know, the items - the issues that she's working on in the Gulf have captured her attention today. This international affairs budget serves seven national interests. I'll turn to these first. Many of you have been briefed on the international affairs strategic plan, and you will recognize the seven interests that come out of this plan. There are seven things that we in the Department of State are trying to get done on behalf of the American people the Department of State and the International Affairs agencies as a whole.

    WASHINGTON (AP)A Supreme Court decision upholding state power to punish cross burners should prompt new state laws outlawing the practice, Virginia's attorney general says. The court ruled Monday that a burning cross is an instrument of racial terror so threatening it overshadows free-speech concerns. Justices voted 6-3 to uphold a 50-year-old Virginia law making it a crime to burn a cross as an act of intimidation. A lower court had ruled the law muzzled free speech. ``A burning cross is a symbol like no other. It doesn't just say we don't like you. The message is we are going to do you harm,'' Virginia Attorney General Jerry W.
