The Human Development Report
is an independent publication commissioned by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). From the beginning, the Report has been a pioneer of methodological innovation and development thinking. Often provocative, the Report was launched in 1990
with the goal of putting people at the center of development, going beyond income to assess people’s long-term well-being. The Reports’ messages — and the tools to implement them — have been embraced by people around the world, as shown by the publication of autonomous National Human Development Reports
by more than 140 countries over the past two decades. The Human Development Report is translated into more than a dozen languages
and launched in more than 100 countries annually.
FREEMUSE – THE WORLD FORUM ON MUSIC AND CENSORSHIP is an independent international organisation which advocates freedom of expression for musicians and composers worldwide.
FREEMUSE was born of the 1st World Conference on Music and Censorship held in Copenhagen in November 1998. FREEMUSE objectives are to: Document violations and discuss their effects on music life; Inform media, human rights organisations and the public; Support musicians in need and observe at their trials; and Develop a global network in support of threatened musicians and composers.
