Today is United Nations’ Human Rights Day. Many observers describe 2014 as a horrific year for human rights violations. War is the major source of abuses around the world and in the past 12 months, major conflicts have intensified. We begin our coverage with Henry Ridgwell from London. For more insight on the state of global human rights, we are joined by Adotey Akwei, Managing Director, Government Relations, Amnesty International USA.
