Human rights watch: World report 2018.

Attacks on journalists, discrimination against minorities, poor protection of refugees and lack of political will to prosecute war crimes remain problems in most Balkan countries in 2017, Human Rights Watch’s World Report 2018 said.

 

Human Rights Watch, HRW, in a new report published on Thursday said that countries in the Balkans still face old human rights problems, such as attacks on journalists, discrimination against minorities, poor protection of refugees and lack of political will to prosecute war crimes.

The report said that political leaders willing to fight for human rights principles showed that they could limit authoritarian populist agendas.

World Report 2018 summarizes key human rights issues in more than 90 countries and territories worldwide.
