Stark Racial Divisions in Reactions to Ferguson Police Shooting
Autor: PEW. Reseach Center
Blacks and whites have sharply different reactions to the police shooting of an unarmed teen in Ferguson, Mo., and the protests and violence that followed. Blacks are about twice as likely as whites to say that the shooting of Michael Brown ?raises important issues about race that need to be discussed.? Wide racial differences also are evident in opinions about of whether local police went too far in the aftermath of Brown?s death, and in confidence in the investigations into the shooting.

ITUC Global Rights Index
Autor: ITUC
The ITUC Global Rights Index covers violations in 139 countries recorded over the past 12 months (April 2013- March 2014). The methodology is grounded in standards of fundamental rights at work, in particular the right to freedom of association, the right to collective bargaining and the right to strike. These rights are based on international human rights law which we have spelled out in the form of 97 indicators in order to translate narrative text into numerical ratings. Countries are then rated in clusters from 1-5 depending on their compliance with collective labour rights. The level of economic development, size or location of the country is not taken into account given that fundamental rights are universal and workers in all parts of the world must have access to them. A high rated cluster means that workers in the country have no right to their collective voice due to government failure to guarantee rights.
