FOREWORD

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS,

Washington, D.C.

This compilation of human rights materials assembles the provisions in current U.S. laws relating to human rights, the texts of key international human rights instruments adopted by the United Nations, by regional organizations, and the International Red Cross Conferences. It should provide a useful guide for Members of the House of Representatives, particularly those on the Committee on Foreign Affairs, interested in the role of human rights in U.S. foreign policy, as well as for the public.

CLEMENT J. ZABLOCKI,

Chairman.

(III)
