"WYOMING (wpr) - Two conferences on international relations take place this weekend at the University of Wyoming. One focuses on transatlantic relations and the other on human rights. Thomas Risse helped organize the latter... he's a scholar of human rights based at the Free University of Berlin, in Germany. Risse is a former professor at U-W and, as of last year, a part-time resident of Centennial, Wyoming. Before he was a professor, he worked for Amnesty International. He tells Addie Goss that there are two key human rights issues at work in the world today.  © Copyright 2009, wpr"
