Previously, Hallie was the staff research associate at UC San Diego’s Laboratory on International Law and Regulation, where she collaborated on a number of journal articles and the book, “Making Human Rights a Reality,” (Princeton University Press, 2013). Her work in human rights began years prior, supporting advocacy and communications efforts in Santiago, Chile, at Amnesty International and the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, where she worked on topics related to economic, social, and cultural rights, and immigrant, refugee and migrant rights.
