AMERICAN HUMAN RIGHTS, ORGANIZATION
A DEFENDER OF AMERICAN CITIZENS RIGHTS ABROAD
MISSION AND SERVICES OF AHR :
In the new global economy, American businesspeople, professionals, students, and others routinely travel and work in politically volatile Middle Eastern and Latin American states. According to observers such as Amnesty International, the political orders of these nations often maintain lawless civic order contrary to international legal conventions.
Americans, who are ignorant of local cultures and social practices in these societies, face severe possible harm.
Americans involved in legitimate pursuits may experience false arrest, Prosecution, confinement, and violation.
Cultural misunderstandings and unfamiliar political apparatus may leave Americans individually unable to resolve these often life-threatening situations.
The American Constitution or the High Commission of the United Nations does not protect American travelers and expatriates experiencing the legal or political entanglements they may encounter in nondemocratic states. Furthermore, the American
government and the corporate world often have little or no material redress against the offending nation in question.
From the perspective of the AHR, these crises emerge from the specific cultural, political, and social situation that demands education, including instruction in cultural practice, and advocacy for human rights.
