Annual Report 2015

front page report

The number of human rights violations recorded in the UAE has reached shocking levels, with increasing numbers of detentions in cases relating to freedom of speech and expression, and increasing criticism from international human rights organisations regarding the direct violations of human rights. Such human rights violations relate to foreign workers and the sponsorship system adopted in Emirates, as well as the treatment of children and women, and the treatment of prisoners.

2014 has seen a rise in coordinated response to opposition, activists and all those who criticize the government's policies. We recorded at the International Center for Justice and Human Rights numerous cases of enforced disappearances, unfair trials and harassment and ill-treatment in prisons and systematic torture and restrictions on freedom of expression and assembly, and other abuses, which is a violation of the UAE Constitution and a retreat from the commitments made by the United Arab Emirates in front of the UN human Rights Council in 2013.

For more details, we publish our annual report on the human rights situation in the UAE in 2014.
