Foreign Lobbying

Note: The information contained here courteous of the U.S. Justice Department shows the degree of foreign lobbying conducted on behalf of some of the world’s worst dictatorial regimes and the amount of money that’s paid out and received involving the foreign principal (client) and the registrant (lobbyist) to causes that are often vague and questionable. While some lobbying mentioned the advancement of human rights, although very little progress has been made in convincing or persuading these regimes of upholding human rights for their citizens.
