22 February 2018, 11:11 UTC | Worldwide

The Amnesty International Report 2017/18 shines a light on the state of the world’s human rights during 2017.

It covers 159 countries and territories from all regions documenting the struggle of many people to claim their rights, and the failures of governments to respect, protect and fulfil human rights.

There are also glimpses of hard-won progress, demonstrating that the defence of human rights does yield positive developments.

This report pays tribute to the human rights defenders who continue to fight for change, sometimes risking their own lives in the process.
