Human rights activists have recently joined with persons affected by the Iranian regime’s human rights abuses in order to issue formal requests for the arrest of Ebrahim Raisi, the president of Iran. Raisi assumed office in August following months of protests by Iranian citizens and expatriates alike over his role in severe human rights violations, including the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners, mostly members and supporters of the main opposition, the Mojahedin-e-Khalq (MEK) in the summer of 1988.

THE appointment of a new Foreign Secretary at the recent reshuffle provides the opportunity for the United Kingdom to review its post-Brexit approach to foreign policy.

March 8 was International Women’s Day, and lawmakers would be well-advised to recognize the occasion as an opportunity to give women’s rights the prominence they are due in discussions regarding those nations that consistently fail to fulfill their international obligations. Unfortunately, that topic continues to be overshadowed in many cases, and the more egregiously a nation behaves in other areas, the more its female population tends to be neglected by Western governments and multinational bodies.
