Human Rights Watch, New York, New York. Recent news reports have exposed Dutch involvement in an airstrike in Iraq in June 2015 that killed at least 70 civilians, with the Minister of Defense finally admitting on November 5, 2019 that the ministry had known about the deaths after years of denial.

Human Rights Watch is increasingly recognized as the world’s leader in building a stronger awareness for human rights. Their annual World Report is the most probing review of human rights developments available anywhere. Written in straightforward, non-technical language, Human Rights Watch World Report prioritizes events in the most affected countries during the previous year. 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 figures. Highly anticipated and widely publicized by the U.S. and international press every year, the World Report is an invaluable resource for journalists, diplomats, and all citizens of the world.
Reviews:
  • Sermak Light
As regular readers of Blog On Books know, we like to cover published works in a wide spectrum of categories and while leading English speaking countries have fallen victim to the `celebrification' of news (and many investigative outlets are experiencing broad financial setbacks) it gives us great pride to call your attention to two new works that shed much needed light on global situations that lie far beyond the media spotlight.

First up is this year's 20th annual Human Rights Watch World Report which surveys the current state of human rights abuses in more than 90 countries using the resources of the Human Rights Watch research staff working in concert with local human rights groups in nearly each of the countries in question. The book complies detailed highlights from dozens of reports published throughout the year by the HRW organization and focuses on main categories of abuse like international justice, health and human rights, refugees and displaced persons issues, incarceration and prisoner treatment, internecion, internment, women's and children's issues as well as abuses in both terrorism and counter-terrorism actions.

The wide-ranging report details the latest governmental and NGO positions on everything from genocide, the state of political prisoners, media and voter suppression, torture, unlawful detainment and just about every abuse known to man in a host of counties from large countries like China, Russia and India to smaller and sometimes despotic regimes in places like Somalia, Rwanda, Libya, Iran to the nation-states of the former Soviet Republic. Nearly every country of significance is reviewed (even the U.S. prison, immigration and `enhanced interrogation' positions fail to escape this organization's perview) with a particular emphasis on changing conditions and a reading of just how successful (or not successful) global human rights organizations are in combating an increasing array of local - sometimes totalitarian - governmental restrictions on investigating these malevolent activities.

Special attention is given to the seemingly protective bodies within the UN's Human Rights Council and NGO division as well as the European Regional Mechanisms and the Asian ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission who are all influenced by their member bodies as to just how much they are willing to investigate and enforce anti-abuse statutes based on seemingly unrelated factors like commerce, trade, aid and political clout. All in all, it's a constant uphill battle for an organization with a limited constituency, especially when domestic forces are often the ones committing the atrocities or injustices to begin with. All HRW full reports can be viewed online as well.

As a newspaper journalist for more than 30 years, now working in online media, I understand the vital need for reliable information about the world's hot spots and the world's emerging needs. Human Rights Watch is a highly respected voice and this volume gives us overviews of 90 areas around the world.

In 2009, American news media is cutting way back on "foreign" reporting, both in terms of staff and space in our U.S. news reports. If we care about the world, we've simply got to take extra steps to keep ourselves well informed.

Even if you're carefully rationing your book purchases this year, if you're involved in fields ranging from education and diversity -- to political activism and direct aid -- you need a volume like this to sharpen your eyes and ears into the world's most urgent needs.
