On Human Rights Day sixty-six years later, Hazel Kahan interviews Bill Hass, United Nations veteran and president of United Nations Association of Southwestern Connecticut who traces the slow, uneven, incremental but continuing progress of human rights among the UN’s 193 member states. “It takes time, it’s a work in progress,” he says.
