Human Rights Watch – World Report 2012
Let’s give the oppressed a voice!
Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights.
By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, they give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes.
The 22nd annual World Report summarizes human rights conditions in more than 90 countries and territories worldwide in 2011. It reflects extensive investigative work that Human Rights Watch staff has undertaken during the year, often in close partnership with domestic human rights activists.
The introductory essay examines the Arab Spring, which has created an extraordinary opportunity for change.
There are also photographs from the massive pro-democratic movement in Egypt, Yemen, Tunis, Syria and Libya.
