Amnesty International Report 2013

Amnesty International's flagship annual report was released today.  The 2013 edition includes a focus on "People on the Move," with the press release noting "that the rights of millions of people who have escaped conflict and persecution, or migrated to seek work and a better life for themselves and their families, have been abused. Governments around the world are accused of showing more interest in protecting their national borders than the rights of their citizens or the rights of those seeking refugee or opportunities within those borders."

The report begins with an introductory essay on "Human Rights Know NO Borders," and continues with surveys on the state of human rights in 159 countries and territories. A global update, regional overviews, and other language editions can be found on the report's web site.

Previous editions of the report can be accessed via my wiki.
