The E.U. claims to back basic rights abroad but often falls short at home, the report says. The 27-member community — set to become 28 when Croatia joins in July 2013 — displayed reluctance to resettle refugees from Libya and bickered about how to handle migrants in peril at sea. Meanwhile, extremist political parties are on the rise across Europe. The report also spotlighted abuse within specific member states, including France’s expulsion of the Roma, Greece’s treatment of detained migrants, Spain’s aggressive policing of antiausterity protests and the U.K.’s rendition practices.
