Chapter Summary

Ford Foundation-supported project formulated a human rights agenda for the post-Cold War world. The twenty-five-member working group made recommendations for the 1993 World Conference on Human Rights in Vienna. In 1995, the Society designated five members as its N.G.O. observers to the Fourth World Conference on Women, in Beijing. Barry Carter resigned as Executive Director in July 1993, to accept a position as the Deputy Under-Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration in the new Clinton Administration. By 1993, it had become the practice to alternate academics and practitioners as successive Presidents of the Society. The 1993 Nominating Committee considered whether this practice had become a mandatory policy. The 1993 Annual Meeting was organized around an overall theme, "Challenges to International Governance", and four crosscutting sub-themes, with several panels. Merillat had large Ford Foundation grants to work with and considerable latitude in allocating the funds.
