2010 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices

The 2010 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices are now available. Published annually by the U.S. Department of State, the report surveys the adherence of over 190 countries to internationally recognized human rights as set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Previous editions are available here.

A video of the release of the country reports can be viewed on the DipNote blog.

A new human rights web site has also been launched in conjunction with this year's country reports. Described as a "one-stop site," this resource "links users directly with news, reports and explanatory information from the State Department and other USG partners, allowing for easy access to publicly available documents."

Other annual reports posted on this blog can be accessed here, while information relating to country of origin conditions can be retrieved here.
