Available for the first time in the trade, this is the world's leading human rights organisation's indispensable annual report. Written in straightforward n-technical language, the Human Rights Watch World Report prioritises events in the most affected countries during the 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 the government and key domestic and international organisations.
Human Rights Watch is the largest US-based international human rights organisation. It investigates, reports on and seeks to curb human rights abuse in some 70 countries.
