Human Rights Watch was founded in 1978 to help protect the rights of people worldwide. The organization began publishing reports in 1980. To date, it has produced more than 1,200 publications covering over 100 countries.

The reports range from six-page country-specific investigations to the comprehensive Human Rights Watch Annual Report to longer documents of 900 pages or more. These publications include information unavailable from any other source. Policymakers, the press, the academic community, and concerned individuals rely on the publications because they report on the most significant issues of our times and document human rights abuses.
