Human Rights Watch
Struggling for a Humane World: Interviews, Ed Kashi: Sugar Cane Syrian Refugees, Photographs
Edited by Ronald Grätz, Hans-Joachim Neubauer.
Human Rights Watch (HRW) has been campaigning for human rights for decades. Privately funded, several hundred employees and even more volunteers are fighting worldwide for the rights of the persecuted, of children, of women and ethnic minorities; for the rights to asylum, freedom of speech and fair pay. What chances does the struggle against persecution, torture and expulsion have today? How can it be financed? What can governments as well as the individual be doing?
In this timely book HRW executive director Kenneth Roth, philanthropist and financier George Soros, as well as activists from the aid organization Attack on Schools and others discuss the work of one of the most important humanitarian organizations of our time. In an accompanying photo-essay photojournalist Ed Kashi shows the people for whom HRW and others across the world are fighting.
