U.S. foreign policy has always included a focus on human rights. However, with the dramatic events unfolding in places like North Africa and the Middle East, the connection between human rights and our long term security interests has never been stronger. With Human Rights Day approaching, Wisconsin’s own Mark Green, former congressman and ambassador to Tanzania, talked to Rotary about how our “smart power” tools can advance both the cause of human rights and our own national security and economic interests. Mark is currently Sr. Director at the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. This was a joint program with the Milwaukee Press Club.
