US Report on Human Rights Record

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on March 28, 2005

From the State Department today: “The Supporting Human Rights and Democracy: The U.S. Record 2004 – 2005 report is submitted to the Congress by the Department of State in compliance with Section 665 of P.L. 107-228, the FY 03 Foreign Relations Authorization Act, which requires the Department to report on actions taken by the U.S. Government to encourage respect for human rights. This third annual submission complements the longstanding Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2004, and takes the next step, moving from highlighting abuses to publicizing the actions and programs the United States has employed to end those abuses.” [navigate from the site as linked above to each section of the report, each of which is available in PDF]
