Confronting the Challenges of Ethical Accountability in International Human Rights Lawyering

handle is hein.journals/stanit50 and id is 375 raw text is: CONFRONTING THE CHALLENGES OF
International human rights lawyering often entails great ethical
responsibilities to the people with whom advocates work. Despite this, there
are very few binding ethical regulations in this area to guide practitioners,
and little scholarly discussion of the issue. This Note draws from a review of
scholarship in multiple disciplines, existing regulations in relevant fields, and
original interview materials to provide a thorough examination of the
applicable standards of professional conduct that govern human rights
lawyers working abroad. Part One identifies the central problem of the
potential ethical challenges facing human rights lawyers. Part Two provides
an in-depth review of the existing regime that constrains international human
rights lawyers, including a survey of various human rights organizations'
internal regulations. Part Three identifies the gaps in this regime and in the
current scholarship that addresses it. Part Four examines the framework
governing international medical ethics as a rough model for a regime in
international human rights law. Finally, Part Five offers a solution to the
problem of ethical accountability, in the form of six basic principles for
human rights lawyers and a proposed framework for implementation.
