News: New Edition of AI's Annual Report on Human Rights

Amnesty International has launched the 2014/2015 edition of its annual report on the state of human rights around the world.  Here is part of the description:
"The Amnesty International Report 2014/15 documents the state of human rights in 160 countries and territories during 2014. Some key events from 2013 are also reported. This report also celebrates those who stand up for human rights across the world, often in difficult and dangerous circumstances. It represents Amnesty International’s key concerns throughout the world, and is essential reading for policymakers, activists and anyone with an interest in human rights."

For overviews of the report's coverage, read the press release and the foreword.

Also note that Amnesty International has reorganized its web site.  One happy result is that now visitors can finally access ALL AI annual reports from one location!  And when I say all, I mean dating back to the very first AI report published in 1962. Thank you, Amnesty International!

Moreover, the various language editions of the report can be located via the same link.  It looks like as of 2007, the report was available in English and Spanish. Then with each subsequent year, more and more language editions were published, with the current report available in 17 languages.  

(The downside of the reorganization is that RSS feeds appear to have disappeared! But that's the subject of a different post...!)

> downside of the reorganization is that RSS feeds appear to have disappeared

another downside is that most of the hyperlinks to AI documents are currently broken, and that as of now many seem to be totally unavailable on the new site.

let's hope they are working to fix all of these issues.
