The Annual Human Rights Review 2018 is published by the Association of Parents of Disappeared Persons(APDP) and Jammu Kashmir Coalition of Civil Society(JKCCS). It summaries key human rights issues facing Jammu and Kashmir.

The year 2018 was the deadliest year of the last decade in Indian administered Kashmir as violence peaked during the year resulting in the killing of at least 586 people in different incidents of violence, which is highest in the last decade. Among 586 people killed in Indian administered Jammu and Kashmir, 160 are civilians, 267 are militants and 159 are members of Indian armed forces and Jammu and Kashmir police. The killing of 267 militants during encounters with armed forces and police is also the highest in the last decade. In fact, there has been a marked uptick in militant killings since 2016 as 145, 216 and 267 militants have been killed in Indian administered Kashmir in 2016, 2017 and 2018 respectively.

The report provides an overview of various types of human rights violations, relevant statistics, the people who are targeted, and addresses the underlining issues of impunity and militarisation in Jammu and Kashmir.
