Alejandro Anaya Muñoz, visiting Fulbright scholar of human rights, will present at the political science graduate student international relations colloquium one of his most recent papers, which discussion the relationship between International Organizations (IOs) and states. Analyzing original quantitative data from Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe, Anaya explores the role of IOs in the configuration of states' interests and normative agendas, looking at the reporting procedure of the Human Rights Committee (HRC) of the United Nations. His findings indicate that states take the HRC seriously and play the role of "good members" of the human rights regime, following the human rights agenda previously set by the Committee.
