Senior fellow Rina Amiri is interviewed on NPR's Sunday Weekend Edition to further elaborate on her open letter published on Friday, August 13 calling on US officials to prevent further atrocities in Afghanistan.
CIC senior fellow James Traub discusses the ultranationalist views that are still dominating the Republican party in the post-Trump era for Foreign Policy.

This policy paper sets out how the former U.S. Department of Justice’s Office for Access to Justice leveraged international activity and mechanisms, including the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, to advance its domestic priorities. The strategy resulted in noteable accomplishments and even protected a number of them after the office was closed in 2018. The brief recommends that the incoming Biden-Harris Administration reestablish the Office for Access to Justice, revitalize the White House Legal Aid Interagency Roundtable charged with implementing Goal 16 for the United States, link U.S. domestic priorities to all 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and prioritize the United States’ role as a leader in the global movement for equal justice for all.
