Please join us for a candid discussion on how the United Nations can support human rights in China: What impact is the UN having on China’s human rights situation? Are the special rapporteurs, Universal Periodic Review process, and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights making a difference? How is the Chinese government responding to the work of the UN on Human Rights in China? And how can the UN address China’s human rights situation more effectively?
