BE INFORMED. Check our rss RSS feed for important updates on the Political Terror Scale.
A yearly report measuring physical integrity rights violations worldwide. The PTS measures levels of political violence and terror that a country experiences in a particular year based on a 5-level “terror scale.” The data used in compiling this index comes from two different sources: the yearly country reports of Amnesty International and the U.S. State Department Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.
