Human Rights Watch

The largest human rights organization based in the United States, Human Rights Watch started in 1978 as Helsinki Watch, monitoring the compliance of Soviet bloc countries with the human rights provisions of the Helsinki Accords. In the 1980s Americas Watch was established to monitor abuses by both sides in the war in Central America, and thereafter other committees were set up to cover other regions of the world such as Asia and Africa. In 1988 all the "Watch" committees were united to form Human Rights Watch. The organization's researchers conduct fact-finding investigations into human rights abuses in all regions of the world, and their findings are then published in dozens of books and reports every year.
