Professor Michael Posner comments on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's decision to shutter the State Department's war crimes office
— July 18, 2017
Excerpt from the Chicago Tribune -- "Michael Posner, who served as Assistant Secretary of State for the human rights bureau during the Obama administration, suggested that shuttering the war crimes office did not foreclose the prospect that another State Department agency might carry the torch.'The key is the appointment of strong people and the provision of adequate resources and political support to enable them to do their jobs effectively,' he said. 'Treating human rights and global justice issues as foreign policy priorities advances US interests and values. They are inseparable.'"
