Human Rights Watch World Report 2006
Human Rights Watch is increasingly recognized as the world's leader in building a stronger human rights culture. Their annual World Report, the most probing review of human rights developments available anywhere, is available in the trade for the first time with the 2006 edition.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 actors. Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the U.S. and international press every year, it is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and, now, all world citizens.
"A wonderful report. An attempt to bring rationality where emotion tends to dominate." —Simon Jenkins, BBC Radio 4: Start the Week
"The reports of the New York–based Human Rights Watch (HRW) have become extremely important … HRW has documented practically every aspect of the growing crisis in a series of detailed reports which have offered sensible recommendations. Cogent and eminently practical, these reports have gone far beyond an account of human rights abuses in the country." —Ahmed Rashid, The New York Review of Books
