What Gaiman and Pratchett Do to You

by PG

Having recently re-read Good Omens*, I saw the message below and immediately thought, "Where is the devil in international human rights?" Given the scandals of UN peacekeepers' involvement in sex trafficking and the oil-for-food program**, not to mention plain inaction in Bosnia and Rwanda, it didn't seem hard to find.

Post-Grad Human Rights Opportunity: Crowley Program in International Human Rights Fordham Law School, New York, NY

Overview/Qualifications: The Crowley Program in International Human Rights is dedicated to promoting human rights scholarship and advocacy at Fordham Law School and around the work. The program offers an annual two-week fact-finding mission abroad, a human rights lecture and brown bag series, a summer internship program, and student research projects. Fordham Law School seeks a law school graduate to administer the Crowley Program as part of a 14-month fellowship. The fellowship will begin in mid-August 2007 and end in October 2008.
Duties: The Crowley Fellow will serve as a member of the adjunct faculty and will teach a seminar in human rights in preparation for the annual fact-finding mission. He or she will also plan all substantive and logistical aspects of the fact-finding mission; participate in the mission; write and publish a post-mission report; run the year-round lecture series for the program; advise students; and coordinate with the human rights community.
To apply: Submit a statement of interest including a detailed description of your international human rights experience, teaching/mentoring/advising experience, language skills, and how the fellowship will advance your professional goals; a resume/CV; a law school transcript; and at least two references, in one complete application package, to:

* I was told at a law firm interview that in the new edition, Pratchett asks readers to stop buying him banana daiquiris.

** Notice that the linked page spells it "program" in the browser title, but "programme" in the text of the webpage. I suppose India alone means that more people on the planet speak British than American, but I suspect we will dominate eventually.
