Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A wonderful report. An attempt to bring rationality where emotion tends to dominate.”—Simon Jenkins, former editor of The Times (London)

“The reports of the New York–based Human Rights Watch (HRW) have become extremely important. . . . Cogent and eminently practical, these reports have gone far beyond an account of human rights abuses in the country.”—Ahmed Rashid, The New York Review of Books

World Report 2010 describes events around the world during the past year, giving concise overviews of the most pressing human rights issues with particular focus on the roles—positive or negative—played in each country by key domestic and international figures.

Human Rights Watch is the largest US-based international human rights organization. It investigates, reports on, and seeks to curb human rights abuses in over seventy countries.

Synopsis:

The most sought-after report of human rights news--an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and citizens.

Synopsis:

Human Rights Watch is increasingly recognized as the worlds leader in building a stronger awareness for human rights. Their annual World Report is the most probing review of human rights developments available anywhere.

Written in straightforward, non-technical language, Human Rights Watch World Report prioritizes events in the most affected countries during the previous year. The backbone of the report consists of a series of concise overviews of the most pressing human rights issues in countries from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, with particular focus on the role—positive or negative—played in each country by key domestic and international figures.

Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the U.S. and international press every year, the World Report is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and all citizens of the world.
