Pakistan

Bordering Iran, Afghanistan, India and China, Pakistan sits at the crossroads between the Middle East, Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Pakistan is a democratic republic, but has experienced several presidencies imposed by the military, the most recent of which came to a close in 2008. Journalists and human rights defenders face intimidation and threats from security forces and other armed groups, contributing to an environment where abuses and violence, particularly against women and girls, remain major problems.
