Official Reports

The United States researches and publishes reports each year on every country in the world, including itself, in a variety of areas.  These reports are intended to shed light on respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, enshrined in international treaties.  These reports build off of publicly available information and conversations that embassy officials have had with those working in the field.  In Madagascar and around the world, they serve as reference documents on which discussions about these issues can take place and progress can be achieved.
