Let’s proceed to the list of the worst human rights countries in 2018. Insider Monkey has recently published an arresting article about it giving you some advice. Protection against enslavement and right to education sound like a normal thing that every human being possesses, but it seems that even in the 21st century, the situation in some parts of the world is not that bright. Apart from these two, freedom of speech, right to a fair trial, protection of physical integrity (which now seem more familiar in terms of not being respected even in liberal countries) all belong to human rights. But of course, that is not the end of the list; there are many more socio-economic and political aspects that are defined as parts of human rights.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the worst human rights countries in 2018 from their list.
The first one can be Burundi. In this country, violent acts such as enforced disappearances, sexual assaults, and arbitrary arrests are actually committed by the members of intelligence services, army, and even police! So surely you can’t feel safe in Burundi, one of the worst human rights countries in 2018. The second country on our short list should be Iran now. Freedom of expression is just one of the fundamental problems concerning human rights in Iran. Many journalists and online media activists are prosecuted for “propaganda against the government,” or “acting against national security.” At last, but not least we are mentioning Yemen now. The armed conflicts are the major cause of Yemen being among the worst human rights countries in 2018. Only in November last year, around (better said at least) 5,300 civilians were killed and around 8,900 wounded in conflicts with Saudi Arabia.
