Promise Institute for Human Rights – Human Rights Around the World Series
Chinese officials and companies have engaged in mass detention of the Uyghur people, pervasive restrictions on practicing Islam, forced labor, broad surveillance, and unlawful separation of children from their families in northwestern, according to credible reports. Chinese officials, for their part, have vigorously rejected all criticisms of these actions.
Join us for a discussion of China’s efforts to shift human rights discourse at the UN and the role of the international community and global businesses in promoting human rights.
