During his fellowship period, Dr. Rowly Brucken built upon his previous research into the origins of international human rights law by investigating human rights history, legal norms, and how human rights and American foreign policy have intersected between the American Revolution and the end of the Cold War. As a result of his efforts, he completed a book prospectus, a work of synthesis that borrows insights from a range of authors who have written about specific human rights-related issues in U.S. foreign policy. It anchors them to a larger thematic narrative that situates each one within a continuum of American foreign policy concerns dating from the start of the republic. The prospectus, table of contents, and the first chapter will go to Northern Illinois Press, whose editor has expressed an interest in issuing a book contract. Based on this research, he also presented a paper at the “Human Rights, Violence, and Dictatorship” conference in Krakow, Poland in December 2015.
