In her current project on transnational legal and humanitarian activism in Africa from the 1920s to the 1970s, Meredith Terretta focuses on the ways activist lawyers invoked international and humanitarian law to claim rights for colonial populations under European administration, particularly in League of Nations mandate and United Nations trust territories.
