Samuel Moyn is conducting a multinational study of the several levels at which human rights became prominent (in political rhetoric, in intellectual life, and in civil society mobilization) in the 1970s. He will focus on some of the major developments of human rights, including their eventual association with Holocaust memory and with governance by international law.
