USCIRF 2020 Annual Report

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is a bipartisan commission that annually reviews the countries in the world that have the worst record on religious freedom. USCIRF uses the information it receives to make recommendations to the U.S. State Department about what countries should be considered “countries of particular concern.” These countries engage in “systematic, ongoing, and egregious” violations of religious freedom. If the State Department agrees with USCIRF, it can then take actions against these countries.
