Suzie Mulesky (Aug. 2018 – May 2020) is a visiting scholar funded by University of Southern California's Russell Endowed Fellowship. Her research examines triage in human rights advocacy by unpacking the complex organizational incentives that impact the choices human rights INGOs make regarding which rights violations to expose, which oppressed groups to advocate for, and which perpetrators to target. Her research evaluates how our social understanding of human rights norms—as practiced and implemented by human rights INGOs—may deviate from human rights legal principles, leaving open an "unknown victims" problem. Her research on human rights monitoring has spawned a general interest in human rights advocacy, international human rights law, and human rights norm development.
