In a troubled and divided world, Amnesty International reveals truth, bears witness and campaigns for change.
But the Foreword – published in this pamphlet along with five Regional Overviews of the year – celebrates real progress in the pursuit of justice. It examines how the arguments have changed over 20 years and how it is harder now for perpetrators of the worst crimes to secure impunity. It explains how the demand for accountability is not confined to redress for killings or torture, but extends to the denial of all the rights that we need to live our lives in dignity.
It ends with a clear call for the future we want: a global reassertion of the value of universal human rights – all rights for all people – and an understanding of each individual as an agent of change, with rights and with responsibilities.
As always, the Amnesty International Report is a testament to the courage, imagination and determination of the worldwide human rights movement. Amnesty International stands in solidarity with all those who suffer abuse and all those who stand up for human rights. Together we will fulfil the promise of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
