Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia and Yemen.
The report, also, provides a unique analysis on the performance of Arab states before international human rights bodies in the United Nations Human Rights council, , as well as in the context of Euro-Mediterranean partnership and the role of the League of Arab states.
Finally the report exposes an analysis on the impact of the political and religious culture in the Arab World on the situation of human rights, with special focus on the internal dynamics and transformations within the islamist, liberal, leftish, pan-arabism trends and within the ruling elites itself as well as the effect of all that on the newly established coalitions inside the regimes and the oppositions from human rights perspective.
