Honors Program Thesis (UNI Access Only)
Dr. Kenneth Basom, Honors Thesis Advisor
Starting in the late 1980’s the issue of human rights abusing regimes lobbying the United States’ government began to be taken more seriously by human rights advocates. Their concern was that the American political system had begun to shift in a direction in which lobbyists could have a major impact on public policy. They worried that, through lobbying efforts, human rights abusing regimes would be to influence U.S. governmental policy directed toward themselves, with the result that these regimes could continue practicing human rights abuses without objection and even, at times, with support of the U.S. government.
