The U.S. Department of State's Country Reports on Human Rights Practices

Description

The U.S. Department of State's Country Reports on Human Rights Practices contain evaluations of human rights as delineated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for all countries receiving assistance from the United States. These reports comprise information from U.S. embassies and consulates, nongovernmental organizations, and international organizations. The information below was compiled from responses to AidData’s 2016 GDA Snap Poll, which asked public, private and civil society leaders to answer 11 questions about whether, when, and why they use governance data in their work. A total of 160 participants to the snap poll indicated familiarity with the Country Reports.
