The World Report 2011 Launch
Essential Human Rights Investigations in 90 Countries
A Message from HRW
“The Human Rights Watch 21st annual World Report summarizes human rights conditions in more than 90 countries and territories worldwide. It reflects extensive investigative work undertaken in 2010 by Human Rights Watch staff, usually in close partnership with domestic human rights activists.
The World Report 2011 also features three essays on worldwide trends: The tendency for governments to “soft talk” rights abusers rather than pressuring them to change, the use of schools as battlegrounds, and the roles of nongovernmental organizations in a changing media landscape.
