The Commission on Unalienable Rights is an advisory body created by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to advise on the role of human rights in US foreign policy. With a mandate to “provide fresh thinking” on human rights and distinguish between unalienable rights and those purportedly provided ad hoc, the Commission is as a thinly veiled attempt to re-write global human rights obligations and create a hierarchy that prioritizes freedom of religion at the expense of women, girls, and LGBTQI people.
