Amnesty International Report 2009: The State of the World's Human Rights

General Material

It reveals the systemic discrimination and insecurity that prevent progress in law from becoming a reality on the ground. Crucially, this report reveals a world where, time-and again, states pick and choose the rights they are willing to uphold, and those they would rather suppress. The report opens with five regional overviews that highlight the key events and trends that dominated the human rights agenda in each region in 2008.

Violence against women and girls is included in this report, including documentation of domestic and sexual violence, trafficking, and exploitation.
