This Report documents ongoing human rights violations taking place in the area proposed for the integrated steel plant and captive port in Jagatsinghpur district, Odisha (formerly known as Orissa). Testimonies gathered directly from project-affected communities evidence significant and ongoing attempts to illegally evict people from their lands, as well as serious human rights violations against individuals and communities who are resisting forced eviction and defending their human rights.

In response to a need expressed by human rights advocates and women’s groups in Haiti, who were among the first to expose abuses being suffered by women and girls in the camps, the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) and the Global Justice Clinic (GJC) at New York University School of Law set out to examine the prevalence of sexual violence in IDP camps and the risk factors that were most contributing to it. Drawing on data gathered from a household survey conducted in four IDP camps one year after the earthquake, as well as focus group discussions (FGDs) and interviews with key informants throughout 2011, this Report provides a snapshot of the relationship between violations of economic and social rights in the camps and vulnerability to sexual violence.

The U.S. government’s aggressive use of the immigration system in its counterterrorism efforts discriminates against Muslims and violates international human rights law, said the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice (CHRGJ) at NYU School of Law and the Asian American Legal and Education Defense Fund (AALDEF) as they released a Briefing Paper on the issue today. The Briefing Paper, “Under the Radar: Muslims Deported, Detained, and Denied on Unsubstantiated Terrorism Allegations,” exposes the many ways in which U.S. officials take advantage of the lax standards and lack of transparency that mark the immigration system as particularly ripe for abuse.
