I’m an Int’l #humanrights lawyer but have never heard of a “right to resist” - @FranceskAlbs what treaty are you referring to? Do you mean a right to resist with violence??? If someone is the victim of an extrajudicial killing their family can’t just do the same in return.

Russia sentenced Brittney Griner to nine years in a penal colony, but she could potentially be released in a prisoner swap. Listen as @EllenBarryNYT , @taniaganguli , @INechepurenko , @michaelcrowley and @JaredGenser discuss her case and its implications.

Renowned human rights lawyer @JaredGenser offers a practical idea for how to end state-sponsored hostage-taking, as in the case of Brittney Griner, by launching a new multilateral agreement based on the principle of collective defense. A must read.

Cambodian-American human rights activist Theary Seng was sentenced to 6yrs in prison on bogus charges by the #HunSen regime. @SecBlinken must use the Levinson Act to declare her a wrongfully detained American & secure her immediate release #ExpressionNOToppression #FreeThearySeng
