The International Bar Association Human Rights Law Working Group conducted a series of interviews with prominent human rights lawyers and advocates, and Case Western Reserve University School of Law Dean Michael Scharf, who is also Director of the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center, is among them.

According to its website, the IBA wanted to highlight the challenges of protecting human rights in the 21st century. During the 40-minute video, Scharf discusses his role as co-founder of the Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG), an NGO that provides pro bono assistance to developing and transitioning states in peace negotiations, post-conflict constitutions and war crime prosecutions, among other issues. PILPG was founded in 1995.
