discrimination based on race (english)
26 Mar 2003
Human Rights Watch publications that address issues of discrimination based on race, caste, ethnicity, and other forms of descent.

Religious and Ethnic Minorities: Discrimination in Law and Practice, September 1997
The situation of religious and ethnic minorities is a neglected aspect of the human rights picture in Iran. With the exception of the persecution of the Baha'i religious minority, little has been written about human rights problems experienced by minorities. Yet, as this report shows, ethnic and religious differences underlie some of the most persistent and serious human rights problems in Iran today. (E907) 36 pp., 5.00/2.95


Genocide in Iraq: The Anfal Campaign Against the Kurds, July 1993
A narrative account of the Iraqi government's organized attempt to eradicate the Kurds living in northern Iraq, this report captures in riveting detail the multiple phases of the Anfal campaign. Over almost two years, Human Rights Watch analyzed tons of captured Iraqi government documents and carried out field interviews with more than 350 witnesses, most of them survivors of the 1988 campaign. As a result of this painstaking work, we conclude that the Iraqi regime committed the crime of genocide. (1088) 400 pp., $20.00/14.95


The Silenced Kurds, October 1996
Kurds are the largest non-Arab ethnic minority in Syria. This report documents the situation of stateless Syrian-born Kurds, who have been denied the right to Syrian nationality in violation of international law. These Kurds, who have no claim to a nationality other than Syrian, are literally trapped in Syria: not only are they treated in a discriminatory fashion in the land of their birth, but also they do not have the option of relocating to another country because they lack passports or other internationally recognized travel documents. (E804) 63 pp., $7.00/5.95
