Social Control and Human Rights
The International Council on Human Rights Policy (ICHRP) asked me to write an essay on Roma in Europe for a project on social control and human rights.     The essay, which I finished in 2009, wound up being a summary of a lot of my work on Roma during the period from the early 1990s.     ICHRP published it, along with 5 other essays, as an annex to their larger thematic report on social control and human rights.   However, after ICHRP collapsed in early 2012, their materials seem to be slowly vanishing from the Internet.    The essay is one of my favorite pieces of my own writing on the subject so I am sharing it here (left button below).

Justice Delayed: The Right to Effective Remedy for Victims of Coercive Sterilization in the Czech Republic
Tens of thousands of women were coercively sterilized in Czechoslovakia and its successor states. Romani women were particularly targeted for these measures. These practices stopped only in 2004, as a result of international pressure. Although some measures have been taken to ensure that these practices are not repeated, to date neither the Czech Republic nor Slovakia have completed the work of providing effective remedy to victims, as is their right.  My 2017 article in Harvard University's Health and Human Rights Journal focusses on efforts in the Czech Republic. It concludes that, inter alia, an administrative mechanism is needed to provide financial compensation to victims, since the road to remedy via courts is effectively blocked.
