“Everyone Blames Me”. Barriers to Justice and Support Services for Sexual Assault Survivors in India

This report, finds that women and girls who survive rape and other sexual violence often suffer humiliation at police stations and hospitals. Police are frequently unwilling to register their complaints, victims and witnesses receive little protection, and medical professionals still compel degrading “two-finger” tests. These obstacles to justice and dignity are compounded by inadequate health care, counseling, and legal support for victims during criminal trials of the accused.

Asia Report N°291. Thailand’s Malay-Muslim society overwhelmingly rejects transnational jihadism, but the country’s vulnerable south is a potential seedbed for advocates of violence. Bangkok and the main militant separatist organisation can head off any jihadist expansion in South East Asia by energising peace talks and agreeing on a more decentralised political system.

USA: Intent to kill, intent to die: First execution in Nevada since 2006 imminent

Index number: AMR 51/7392/2017. There is a killing on the cards in Nevada. Although some may say it has quasi-suicidal features, it is in fact a thoroughly premeditated and calculated homicide. It has been pursued for more than a dozen years. This would be the first judicial execution in Nevada since 26 April 2006; the first to take place in Nevada’s new death chamber at Ely State Prison; and the first in the whole of the USA to be carried out using the particular three-drug combination chosen by Nevada. The execution has been set for 8pm on Tuesday 14 November 2017.

“This is our home”: Stateless minorities and their search for citizenship

A new UNHCR report warns that discrimination, exclusion and persecution are stark realities for many of the world’s stateless minorities, and calls for immediate action to secure equal nationality rights for all. More than 75% of the world’s known stateless populations belong to minority groups, the report notes. Left unaddressed, their protracted marginalization can build resentment, increase fear and, in the most extreme cases, lead to instability, insecurity and displacement.
