The FCO's human rights work in 2011 - Foreign Affairs Committee Contents

7  Conclusion

118.  The UK has a strong record in upholding human rights across the world, and the FCO's 2011 Report on Human Rights and Democracy provides ample evidence of its work in promoting higher standards of human rights abroad, sometimes under difficult circumstances. That work is widely recognised within the sector, and we applaud it. We hope that the constructive criticism in this Report will enable the FCO and indeed the Government, collectively, to improve upon that performance.
