ICFRC: UI Undergraduate Students Speak on Topics about Human Rights

Listen to an audio podcast of this program.

Over the past weeks Sudan has faced a governmental crisis. Ex-President Omar al-Bashir has been moved to prison and a transitional military council has taken reigns of the country. Sara Hassan plans to cover the current uprisings that are taking place in her country, Sudan. She will provide a brief historical context on the Sudanese governmental regime, giving a sense of what the anger on the streets of Sudan is stemming from.

Caitlin Chenus is a senior at the University of Iowa and a Rex Honey Intern at the University site of Iowa Center for Human Rights. She pursued a research project in France this past summer with support from International Programs and the Stanley family. She will be graduating in May of 2019 and going on to attend law school. She plans to study international and comparative law with a focus on immigration.
