Celebrating Human Rights Day, 10 December

AS today is Human Rights Day we wanted to celebrate by sharing with you some of the striking photo essays by award-winning photographers from the World Report 2014.

This year’s slogan is ‘Human Rights 365’, emphasising the fact that every day is, or should be, Human Rights Day. At Policy Press we are proud to publish the annual Human Rights Watch’s World Report, which reminds us that human rights abuses continue around the world. It is imperative that we continue to monitor these inequalities and fight for rights that for most in the West think commonplace and too easily take for granted.

Slideshow images are taken from the global rights watchdog’s 24th annual review of global trends and news in human rights which features incisive country surveys and hard-hitting essays highlighting key human rights issues.
