Why a press review?
This blog is a press review dedicated to the state of human rights worldwide. We daily browse international and reliable newspapers, as well as well known NGOs' websites, from around the world and select human rights related articles. By doing so, we intend to give a global and impartial overview of the situation of human rights on an international scale. We also aim to address human rights related issues and topics that might be sometimes overlooked by major media channels.
Press reviews are appreciated for their diversity of points of views and perspectives. At the end of the day, the reader has a complete and rich understanding of the issue.
This blog also aims to make our readers save time! We are well aware that time is a scarce resource for most of you. Instead of jumping from a website to another, you can stay cozy on our blog and have access to the most relevant information in the area of international human rights.
We care about intellectual property
We take intellectual property very seriously. Each article's source and author are explicitly named. Photos credits are systemically listed. We tremendously value artists and journalists' work and couldn't do our own work without their invaluable contribution.
However, if you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us by using the form below! We want to hear from you if that means doing things better! Thanks!
