Global Good Samaritans: Human Rights as Foreign Policy

By Alison Brysk | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This project has been an experience as well as a study of many forms of generosity. Five years of research on five continents has renewed my faith in humanity, and taught me many important lessons far beyond the scholarly endeavor. Hundreds of strangers have shared with me their time, resources, work, wisdom, and comforts—and some strangers have become friends. I am profoundly grateful, and can only hope this contribution justifies in some small measure their efforts, despite its inevitable shortcomings (for which I bear sole responsibility).

Every phase of this research benefited from generous and timely financial support. In the summer of 2003, I traveled to Costa Rica with the support of the University of California’s Latin American Studies program, under a U.S. Department of Education grant. The following year, I participated in a UCI Study Abroad program at Lund University, and received supplementary funding for summer research from my university’s Center for Global Peace and Conflict Studies. My 2005 multisited summer trip to Canada was underwritten by the Canadian Consulate’s Canadian Studies program. The research in Japan, the Netherlands, and South Africa was all completed during a 2006 sabbatical, generously funded by the Abe Foundation/SSRC Fellowship in Global Issues (which also provided support during my stay in Japan via CGP, the Center for Global Partnership). In 2007, I was honored to receive a Fulbright Fellowship at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (Waterloo), which enabled me to return to Canada to complete the research on that country as well as the chapter on intergovernmental networks.

I was also fortunate in receiving early and sustained academic feedback, which contributed immeasurably to the development of the project. The research on Costa Rica was presented at the 2004 Latin American Studies Association conference, whereas preliminary findings on Sweden and Costa Rica were discussed at the University of Ottawa in 2005. The Canada research was refined further in a 2006 presentation at the John F. Kennedy Institute at the Free University of Berlin, as well as the 2007 International Studies Association, and a 2007 roundtable at CIGI. South African colleagues at UNISA (National University of South Africa) helped to develop that portion at a presentation concluding my 2006 stay in that country. The Japan chapter was presented at an Abe Fellowship Retreat in January 2007, and ably commented upon by Hiroshi Fukurai. Later on,
