News: HRW World Report 2017 Published

Human Rights Watch has published its annual human rights survey, World Report 2017. As the Foreword notes, "World Report 2017 is Human Rights Watch’s 27th annual review of human rights practices around the globe. It summarizes key human rights issues in more than 90 countries and territories worldwide, drawing on events from late 2015 through November 2016."

The first section includes five essays. The keynote focuses on the "dangerous rise of populism" that "threatens to reverse the accomplishments of the modern human rights movement," while the final essay discusses the challenges of providing secondary education to children in emergencies. The second section includes the country chapters.

Readers can download the entire report or browse by individual essay or country. Previous editions of the World Report can be found here.
