Amelia Parker "is the Program Coordinator of the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at American University Washington College of Law. She received her J.D. in 2006 from WCL, where she served as co-founder of the Genocide Teaching Project. Prior to working at WCL, Amelia received a bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee (Knoxville) in Comparative Studies of Race and Ethnicity and a second major in Italian. After receiving the Patrick Stewart Human Rights Scholarship in 2000, she traveled to Ghana and worked for the Legal Resources Centre, where she researched the right to work of Sierra Leonean refugees, as well as the human rights implication of water privatization in Ghana. Most recently, Ms. Parker’s focus has been on the domestic implementation of human rights laws in the U.S. In 2007, she published an article in the Human Rights Brief concerning racial inequalities in the U.S. public education system and U.S. non-compliance with international treaty norms, which led to her being a contributing author to the U.S. Human Rights Network’s shadow report on U.S. compliance to the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) in 2008."
