Speakers For This Show

Jeff Bachman
Jeff Bachman is a Professorial Lecturer in Human Rights and Co-Director of the Ethics, Peace, and Global Affairs MA Program at American University. His teaching and research interests focus primarily on U.S. foreign policy and human rights. He is also interested in the role news media plays in constructing human rights narratives. He is especially interested in the misuse of international law as a political tool through its selective application and enforcement. Bachman has field experience working for Amnesty International in the Government Relations for Europe/Eurasia program.

Maja Groff
Maja Groff is an international lawyer based in The Hague, assisting in the negotiation and servicing of multilateral treaties. She works on existing and potential international treaties in areas of child law, issues disproportionately affecting women, disability rights, access to legal information and other topics. She conducts liaison work with professional bodies and other international organisations and has played a key role in the co-ordination of international conferences and experts groups. Admitted to the New York Bar, she serves on the United Nations Committee of the New York City Bar Association, and is a member of the Advisory Boards of BCorp Europe and ebbf.

Michelle Kwak
Michelle Kwak is the standing President of PEACE (Peace of East Asia through Creative Engagement), a highly regarded academic student organization at American University–where she is also pursuing a dual B.A degree in International Studies and Asian Studies. Her passion primarily lies in International Development, particularly in International Law concerning disability rights and reform policy in East Asia. She was appointed as a “Youth Ambassador for Peace” by the Washington D.C Korean Council in 2016 and her academic work and research has recently been recognized by the Korean Ministry of Defense. Michelle’s experience working with several international non-governmental organizations has fed her academic interest in examining media rhetoric as a tool to shift public policy & opinion.

Medea Benjamin
Medea Benjamin is the co-founder of the women-led peace group CODEPINK and the co-founder of the human rights group Global Exchange. She has been an advocate for social justice for more than 40 years. Described as “one of America’s most committed — and most effective — fighters for human rights” by New York Newsday, and “one of the high profile leaders of the peace movement” by the Los Angeles Times, she was one of 1,000 exemplary women from 140 countries nominated to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the millions of women who do the essential work of peace worldwide. She is the author of eight books, including Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control.
