Impact

Human Rights Watch documents right abuses around the world with the ultimate goal of ending them and bringing the perpetrators to justice. Change doesn’t come easily, and in some cases it can be painfully slow. And it rarely comes from our efforts alone, but rather from the combined efforts of numerous groups and activists. Progress can take many forms - laws are changed, investigations launched, international pressure is applied, perpetrators brought before courts – but each is a step forward in the pursuit of justice and promotion of human rights. Here we document developments that mark progress in the many issues we work on around the world.

世界法庭于罗兴亚案做出不利缅甸裁定

国际法院于2020年1月23日下令缅甸予防一切针对罗兴亚穆斯林的种族灭绝行为,对目前还留在若开邦的罗兴亚人而言至关重要。法庭一致同意通过“临时办法”,要求缅甸防范种族灭绝并采取证据保全措施。
