Human Rights and Democracy Report 2014

Volume 594: debated on Thursday 12 March 2015

I have today laid before Parliament a copy of the 2014 Foreign and Commonwealth Office Report on Human Rights and Democracy (Cm 9027).

The report summarises the global human rights situation in 2014. It provides examples of what the Government are doing to promote human rights and democratic values overseas. It reviews the situation in specific countries and against the thematic priorities around which our work is organised. And it reports on the benefits for UK citizens of all our overseas work on human rights, in terms of prosperity, security, and for British nationals overseas, and the overseas territories.

The full report can be read at and is also available online at:
