EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Peru is a constitutional, multiparty republic. Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, leader of the Peruanos Por el Kambio (Peruvians for Change) party, won the June 2016 national elections in a vote widely considered free and fair.

Civilian authorities generally maintained effective control over the security forces.

The most significant human rights issues included allegations of torture by some members of the police; allegations of improper influence and corruption of the judiciary; criminalization of libel, although no such charges were filed this year; government corruption at all levels; violence against women and children; and forced labor at illegal mining sites.

The government took steps to investigate and in some cases prosecute or otherwise punish public officials accused of abuses. Officials sometimes engaged in corrupt practices with impunity.
