Human Rights in China. Past, Present and Future

April 28, 2014 - 10:00-11:30

Lecture by John Kamm
 
Abstract:
Round table meeting on human rights in China – past, present and future. Which developments have taken place in China since 1978? Where is China today? What is the future perspective? What is important to know from the perspective of a foreign business company? After a presentation by Executive Director John Kamm, Founder of Dui Hua Foundation, a panel of China experts and scholars will comment.
 
About the speaker and Dui Hua:
Dui Hua (in Chinese dialogue) is a non-profit USA based humanitarian organization established in 1999 by then businessman in Hong Kong, John Kamm. Dui Hua seeks clemency and better treatment to at-risk detainees through promotion of universally recognized human rights in well-informed, mutually respectful dialogue with China. Focusing on political and religious prisoners, juvenile justice, women in prison, and issues in criminal justice the work of Dui Hua rests on the premise that positive change is realized through constructive relationships and exchange. 
 
Dui Hua enjoys special consultative status with the United Nations’ Economic and Social Council and is the only independent NGO focused on human rights in China to have such status. Since its establishment Dui Hua has been supported by a number of European governments including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
  
This round table meeting is free of charge and takes place in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Asia office.
