Do human rights campaigns work? Does advocacy from activists in the US or UK actually help political prisoners overseas get released?
In this episode, I’m delighted to be in conversation with Geoffrey Mock, the Egypt and Syria Country Specialist for Amnesty International USA. Geoffrey has been involved in human rights activism for over three decades. I wanted to have him on the show to talk about why people should care about political prisoners, how he started doing this work, and some of the ethical challenges and limitations of human rights advocacy.
