The world’s pulse in one essential book, Human Rights Watch’s World Report 2012 is a must-read for anyone interested in the fight to protect human rights in every corner of the globe.
The most sought-after report of human rights news, Human Rights Watch’s annual World Report is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and citizens. The twenty-second annual report summarizes human rights conditions in more than ninety countries and territories, focusing particularly on the roles--positive or negative--played in each country by key domestic and international figures. It reflects extensive investigative work undertaken in 2011 by Human Rights Watch staff, usually in close partnership with domestic human rights activists, and features a major introductory essay by Human Rights Watch executive director Ken Roth on the most pressing human rights issue of the year.
“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, New York
