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

Human Rights Watch, under director Kenneth Roth, leads the struggle to focus the world's eye on human rights issues at home and abroad. Its annual World Report, written in straightforward, nontechnical language, conducts a systematic investigation of human rights abuses in every country from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, with a particular focus on the roles played in each country by key domestic and international figures. Then—in incisive essays written by staff, scholars, and activists—the report describes the way forward to a more humane future.

Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the US and international press every year, World Report—collecting reports on human rights issues from 2010—is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and citizens.

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. For more information, visit www.hrw.org.

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.
