The Human Rights Institute invites you to the second talk in our series marking the 20 year anniversary of Sale v. Haitian Centers Council. Sale was one of the seminal American human rights cases of the 1990s. It changed U.S. foreign policy, spawned satellite litigation, became the subject of numerous books and articles, and inspired a generation of human rights scholars and activists. Today, two decades after the Haitian case, it is worth examining some of the many aspects of its legal legacy.
