ABSTRACT
The article focuses on internally displaced persons (IDP) and the lawyers who represent them in Darfur, Sudan. It discusses research on how U.S. women's groups deploy human rights laws in local shaming strategies. It hypothesizes that the the differences in perceptions of rights and strategies to use them would be particularly strong between disadvantaged groups in advanced democracies and in a failed state such as Sudan.
