Martha K. Huggins, Roger Thayer Stone Professor of Sociology, was a research scholar last spring at the Netherlands School of Human Rights Research in Utrecht, where she drafted briefs and research proposals for monitoring police human rights abuses. As part of her work at the institute, she delivered several lectures at Utrecht University and at the Institute for Human Rights in the Hague. Huggins also appeared last fall in two Brazilian television programs. She was a panelist on Rio De Janeiro's Multirio program about the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. She was also featured in a 30-minute segment on Glôbo Television's “Milênia” program, an interview about her 1998 book, Political Policing: The United States and Latin America. The same book was in a November article on the CIA in Brazil's national newspaper, Jornal de Brasil.
