    Human Rights Index 2012: Maplecroft Analyzes Human Rights Risks

    Maplecroft's Human Rights Risk Index for 2012 paints a grim picture of human rights in countries worldwide.

    12/ 7/11

    The research agency ranked 197 countries according to their commitment to human rights and concluded that over 48 percent of the assessed nations are at an "extreme" or "high" risk of human rights violations.

    "In its fifth year, the Maplecroft Human Rights Risk Atlas paints a picture of a continuously worsening landscape for human rights in 2012 worldwide. Maplecroft's analyses over the past five years reveal a steady trend of a deteriorating human rights situation with more and more countries presenting 'extreme' or 'high' risk for human rights," the report reads.

    Maplecroft analyzes structural, process and outcome indicators to assess violentions on the ground, and studies legislative and international treaty commitments for each country individually.

    In this year's index, twenty percent of the countries in the category of "extreme risk" were part of the Arab Spring. Although the human rights situation in those nations might improve in the future, the violent crackdown on protesters in many of them have shown few improvements so far.

    The only difference is China never claimed to be a herald of human rights, unlike some other country who are also on the list. Let the trolling begin. :scared1:

    We are also in the red, if my eyes serve me right. Wonder how much the recent crackdowns and gag orders have to do with it. :hmm:

    What does any of them got to do with human rights? Double digit growth? Claim to be the next super power?(that is to assuming CHina has ever proclaimed that in the first place) The former USSR was a super power, how was their human rights record again?

    There are hardly any correlation between those things. This topic is about human rights, not double digit growth and "super power" .

    Once again, this proves that no matter how desperately India tries to be friendly to the west, the country is condemned to be 'barbarians' in the eyes of the westerners. This is unfortunately true. Indian democracy is barlu a tool used by the ruling elites to legitimize their power. Once every couple years, the billion+ indians get to exercize their holy rights to vote for one of Gandhi family members only to disappear next day as non-existent until the next election day. 'Chinese democracy' sucks, 'indian democracy' is 0.00001% better. Sad but true.

    ^^ What makes you think India is "desperate" to be "friends with the West"? :crazy:

    You have been on this forum long enough (and hence know the views of Indians well enough) not to make such foolish statements!!!

    And you don't know the first thing about Indian democracy and voting. "holy rights to vote for one of Gandhi family members" - that's what you said, eh? Do you know that it has been more than 20 years since a Gandhi was in power at the center? Do you know the mind boggling number of political parties, leaders and state-level leaders we have here?

    The indian politicians do not rule by divine right or any of that nonsense that you believe. Few indians vote - and 100% voting is possible in only smaller nations, like in Norway/Finland/Australia, places with high literary rates and small populations.

    You live in america right? You call the discriminatory voting system in america, systematically discriminating against the blacks, as as a true democracy? Don't make me laugh...

    Not everyone votes for the "gandhi" family in India. Unfortunately India has implemented a Parliamentary system, a relic of colonial years, whereas other models of democracy would probably serve better.

    Several instances of the power of the people have occurred, quite recently, without the violent crackdowns one would see in the middle east or the complete clamping down one sees in China. And the democratic government does a remarkable job as a balancing arm for minority rights in this nation - and I daresay to those the democracy is a godsend, as under a totalitarian scheme, they would have been completely stamped out ala CCP.

    It seems your own ignorance and lack of understanding leads to stupidity like your post. Sad but true.

    You don't miss your freedom until you lose it. :thumb:

    Founder -> Protege -> daughter -> son -> some nobody -> wife(italian connection) -> son? whatever, just like the homeless keep voting for morons like Bush in the US indians will keep voting for the Gandhis or some of their foot-soldiers. It's the system. If you think the so-called democracy in India has brought anything to the poor or the poorer who make up 80-90% of india's population, then you are simply being dishonest. India democracy is democracy in name only, it is fairly tale that is faker than the russian democracy.

    Let us keep the "is democracy good for development, or is a thuggish CCP goon rule better" discussion separate. Here, you need some education about India's rulers.

    "Indians keep voting for Gandhis or some of their foot soldiers" is the most idiotic comment I have heard off-late. :crazy:

    The most populous state in India, UP, is currently ruled by Mayawati of BSP. Karnataka, where I hail from, is ruled by Sadananada Gowda of BJP. Before this it was ruled by Kumaraswamy of JD(S). Tamilnadu is ruled by Jayalalitha of AIADMK, and it was ruled by Karunanidhi of DMK before this. Gujarat is ruled by Narendra Modi of the BJP. West Bengal is ruled by Mamata Bannerjee of the TMC. Kerala... ah, forget it!!! :frusty:

    You just don't know the mind-boggling diversity of India's federal political system. I have often seen that Chinese just cannot understand this concept of so many parties, so many leaders, so much diversity. It befuddles them. I think it is the same case with you. :tsk:

    1. Is this what CCP includes in Civics text-books in China (If they are allowed to touch such topics). India democracy has managed to lift 400 million Indians out of poverty within a decade.
    2. Here people don't vanish in thin air for showing dissent (don't believe me? Do you know who is Arundhati Roy?).
    3. Please don't challenge the intelligence of Indian "homeless", they have voted the likes of Nitish, Modi, Raman Singh into power.

    Besides the word DEMOCRACY sounds like a curse when coming out a Chinese mouth, what do you know about democracy, free will and liberty? U have never experienced them, so u cannot understand them properly.

    And one Chinese member here was bragging about some shipments sent to Somalia and claiming it's for peaceful purpose.Seems like they exported some Chinese Human Rights Violations to go below Somalia in this ranking. :pound:

    India's poverty getting worse. There are now more poors living in India than in Africa.

    60% of indians don't have access to sanitation, 40% of indian children malnutritioned, infant mortality rate in India is among the worst in the world.

    yet folks (who tend to originate from the upper-class of course) here won't hesistate a second to defend the system because they know they are the ones benefiting most from it.

    The same can be said about people like you - defending the CCP rapist thugs and goons because you benefit from it!

    And are you a troll? Do you want me to paste articles about China's sanitation and poverty and human slavery? Only an ass will say that India's poverty has grown worse. The fact is that earlier India had mainly only poor people, now it has mainly middle class people and poor people, both. The only problem is economic inequality, so the poverty is more visible.

    You need to do some study on India. This is the fourth or fifth time I have seen you making totally foolish comments about India based on lack of knowledge. Your knowledge on India is actually very superficial. :tsk:

    The irony of this thread is that instead of doing an introspection of what went wrong, the Indian members are bashing China, Pakistan and North Korea non stop. Countries that has always done poorly on human rights and never claimed to be herald of human rights. You dont get better by comparing with those worse than you.
    After reading the rank, the only thing come to your mind is there are worse countries? ROFL
    Pure hilarious if you think about it.
