Freedom House offers the following resources and Caucasus expert for media interviews:
Today's military coup in Mauritania is a tragic setback for a country that only last year celebrated the inauguration of its first democratically-elected president after years of political repression.
Freedom House is deeply concerned about an Egyptian court's recent decision to sentence human rights campaigner Saad Eddin Ibrahim to two years in prison on charges of defaming Egypt.
Freedom House is offering a new resource to help international observers and athletes better understand the political context of this year's Olympic Games and the comments made today by Chinese President and Communist Party General-Secretary Hu Jintao.
Chinese journalists face greater repression today than in 2001 when their country was awarded the Olympic Games, with authorities accelerating their media crackdown before the opening ceremony August 8.
The United States must pair its tough rhetoric on promoting democracy in the Middle East with genuine actions that support the region's democratic activists, such as Egyptian political prisoner Ayman Nour.
Today's arrest of Radovan Karadzic, the former Bosnian Serb leader accused of genocide and crimes against humanity, is a triumph for the international community and Serbia's new government.
