Human Rights Watch is increasingly recognized as the world's 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.
The introduction to this annual publication reflects on recent events and recent changes in the world. The body of the annual report considers the human rights record of some 150 governments throughout the world.
This 17th annual World Report summarizes human rights conditions in more than 70 countries worldwide. It reflects extensive investigative work undertaken in 2006 by the Human Rights Watch research staff, usually in close partnership with human rights activists in the country in question. Who will act as the world's human rights leader? US influence has been undercut by its detention of suspects without trial and use of torture; emerging democracies and other potential leaders have been at best inconsistent. The European Union, founded on human rights principles, is well positioned to fill the void but needs new thinking and stronger policies if it is to succeed. Book jacket.
