Human Rights Watch releases World Report 2013

Last week, Human Rights Watch released its annual report summarizing human rights conditions in more than 90 countries and territories worldwide in 2012. The report is based on extensive investigations by HRW personnel along with local human rights activists.

The report includes a chapter that criticizes the United States for our ongoing use of the death penalty and other excessive punishments (such as life sentences for some nonviolent third offenses); prison conditions; racial disparities in the criminal justice system; non-citizens' rights; labor rights; women's and girls' rights; LGBT rights; and counterterrorism.
