Samuel Kofi Woods describes his life as a human rights defender in Liberia, a nation that has endured a decades-long civil war that killed more than 200,000. Woods argues that, as Liberia emerges from the ashes of conflict, rule of law remains critical to the advancement of peace and justice in his country. He maintains that those who lead with compassion and conviction will ultimately succeed, and those who choose to be dictators will fail. He calls on all governments and government officials to become champions for the advancement of human rights and accountability.
