❝ Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein…recently stepped down from four years as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights…A Jordanian prince whose father is Arab and mother European, a Muslim who has visited Auschwitz and bicycled around Israel, he is a fervent believer in “the human rights of each individual, everywhere.” A soft-spoken man who talks with hard-edged eloquence, he took on an impossible job, challenging violators on all sides, whether American, Russian, Chinese, African, Arab, Israeli, or other. And doing it publicly.
❝ He is reflecting on those difficult years as a Distinguished Global Leader-in-Residence at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perry World House, where he shared some of his thoughts.
We invite you to read his thoughts on the responsibilities of that post. On what has been accomplished…what still needs to be done.
