One of the de facto ground rules was the hostage gets returned in generally OK health. Warmbier's case broke that mold and has generated more questions than answers.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Human Rights

Her activism has been motivated in part by her strong views that her children should inherit a country where human rights, environmental protection, and rule of law are meaningful and part of everyday reality, and not just rhetoric spouted by the ruling Communist Party. Many people both inside and outside of Vietnam admire Mother Mushroom for her straight-forward views, her unbending principles, and her bravery in taking action when she has so much at stake with her young family.feedback

Jul 02 2017 - Facebook

Facebook is being used as an organizing tool, as a self-publishing platform, as a monitoring device for people when they are being detained and when they get released.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Deportation

By now, there are plenty of survivor accounts that reveal (North Korean leader) Kim Jong Un's administration is routinely persecuting those who are forced back to North Korea after departing illegally, and subjecting them to torture, sexual violence, forced labor – and even worse.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Singapore

The governments should recognise that peace and stability requires promoting tolerance, not kowtowing to extremists who haven't figured out that their children are going to watch everything on the internet anyway some day. These three governments should protect freedom of expression and the arts, and tell the gaggle of extremists to stay at home if they don't want to see the movie.feedback

Dec 24 2016 - United Nations

Amos Yee is the sort of classic political dissident that the U.N. Refugee Convention was designed to protect, and Human Rights Watch hopes the U.S. will recognize his asylum claim.feedback

Dec 14 2016

With this final decision running roughshod over Anwar's rights and sending him back to prison, Najib and the ruling UMNO party have just fired the starting gun on the expected 2018 election by permanently sidelining the opposition's most capable leader.feedback

Dec 09 2016 - Rohingya

Quite clearly, there is a major domestic political dimension to this, as Najib positions himself as the champion of downtrodden Muslims in the region, which he and UMNO obviously believe will be popular in the Malay Muslim heartland. And of course, talking about the Rohingya is a good way to change the subject from the 1MDB scandal.feedback

This is a recipe for rights abuses against the Rohingya. The Burmese government is foolhardy to think they will be able to control the local recruits operating on a basis of bias against the Rohingya people.feedback

Rather than trying to shut down reports that it doesn't like, the government should respect press freedom and permit journalists to do their jobs by investigating what is really happening on the ground.feedback

Oct 13 2016 - Malaysia

We found that there were few countries in Southeast Asia worse than Malaysia when it came to the rapid deterioration of human rights... it's like a bad movie sequel.feedback

Jun 20 2016 - Taiwan

This group should be allowed to appeal their deportation in a full and fair hearing in a court of law rather than be hustled on to a plane and sent to an uncertain fate back in China.feedback
