A new collection of books on human rights and soft power has been added to the IWP library by the Center for Human Rights and International Affairs, a project of IWP and human rights group Good of All.
These books are intended to serve as a resource for IWP students who are researching issues related to human rights around the world. The collection will be housed at the Center, located in Marlatt Mansion, and can be checked out by students at the Center via the regular IWP library system.
The collection includes several books authored by endorsers of Good of All’s Declaration on Soft Power, including The Missing Peace: The Inside Story of the Fight for Middle East Peace by Dennis Ross. Other notable books include Soft Power: The Means to Success in World Politics by Joseph S. Nye and The Future of Freedom: Illiberal Democracy at Home and Abroad by Fareed Zakaria.
“This collection is a long-term project, and will let students know that this Center is here to stay,” commented David Roush, an IWP alumnus who helps manage the Center and assembled the books for the new collection. “The Center is pleased to contribute to the IWP community, and we are happy to be a part of it.”
The collection represents a further solidifying of the Center’s presence on campus, and its arrival at IWP follows several successful events hosted by the Center on Digital Soft Power.
Books can be checked out at the Center’s office from Monday-Thursday, 10:00am-5:45pm.
