Wikipedia Bio: Kenneth Roth has stated that Jimmy Carter’s introduction of human rights as an element of US foreign policy in the late 1970’s further inspired Roth to take on human rights as a vocation. Roth worked in the private practice as a litigator, as well served as a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the S.D. of New York. In 1987, he accepted a position with Human Rights Watch as deputy director. Roth was made the executive director in 1993, and has traveled extensively on behalf of Human Rights Watch, reporting human rights concerns and defending human rights worldwide.
