Explores social justice advocacy for human rights violations.
Advocacy for Social Justice: A Global Perspective is the first book that provides contextualized information about advocacy for a range of social problems. This title examines issues at a local and global level, theoretical foundations, and a range of advocacy responses. Students will be able to answer the questions: “What is advocacy for social justice?”, “Who in our world needs advocacy the most, and why?”, “How can advocates help?”, and “What can we do?” Policy and practice components of advocacy work are examined from both historical and contemporary perspectives.

She has also extensively studied forced migration and conflict-generated diaspora and their engagement in peace and conflict processes.
Michelle is also interested in human rights mechanisms and the role of the United Nations in responding to human rights violations, as well as the relationship between emerging technologies, globalization and global conflict situations. Michelle is particularly committed to advocating for marginalized and at-risk populations on a global level. Michelle is a full-time faculty member at DePaul University in Chicago in the MSW program.
