The second project I have been working on is with IJM (International Justice Mission). We have been researching and summarizing cases related to the unlawful taking of property in Uganda. I have found myself reading so many interesting cases that I just loose track of time. I sometimes thought researching U.S. cases was difficult, but having to research cases of another country has been the most frustrating and educational aspect for me.
I am taking an International Human Rights class this semester. In that class, we have learned about the European and African human rights systems. Being able to learn in class about the various systems and then to see it in real life through the work we do for the Center has been very rewarding.
