The Year 2013 in Rights: Syria, the NSA, and More
This morning, Human Rights Watch launched our World Report 2014 -- a summary of rights issues in more than 90 countries and territories around the world. It also includes 5 essays, photo essays and video.
- At the launch press conference in Berlin, Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth spoke on the year's biggest news stories, from the war in Syria to the sweeping surveillance of the US National Security Agency (NSA). He also spoke on two new treaties that will help protect domestic workers and artisanal miners who have traditionally worked with mercury.
