Freedom House Launches “Worst of the Worst” Report

At the 17th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Freedom House released Worst of the Worst 2011: The World’s Most Repressive Societies, its annual report identifying the world’s worst human rights abusers.  The report is a resource for human rights advocates and serves as a call to the world’s governments, policymakers, human rights organizations, and democracy advocates to speak out for basic human rights in these countries.  Citizens in these countries endure systematic and pervasive human rights violations.  The report identifies 17 countries and 3 territories where citizens live in extremely oppressive environments.
