When U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visits China this weekend, he should convey a clear message to the Chinese leadership that a good working relationship with the United States will depend in part on the government’s respect for universal human rights, Freedom House and seven other human rights groups urged in a joint letter submitted to the State Department on Wednesday, April 10.

Freedom House joined prominent rights groups in calling on Secretary of State John Kerry to make human rights a priority in his upcoming trip to China.


Authoritarian regimes around the world are exporting their worst practices and working together to repress their own citizens and undermine human rights standards internationally. They have collaborated extensively to strengthen their grip on power, often in the face of domestic discontent and international criticism. This cooperation, which might be dubbed “authoritarian internationalism,” presents a significant challenge to democracy around the world and has likely contributed to the decline in global freedom registered by Freedom House over the past seven years.
