Thirty Years after Tiananmen Square
Human Rights in China Today

9 October 2019 @ 6:30 pm

Guangcheng Chen, the “barefoot lawyer” who drew worldwide attention to forced abortion in China and who is a tireless advocate of the oppressed in China, will reflect upon developments since the Tiananmen Square protest was crushed by the Communist party.  Has the situation deteriorated further?  What can be done to protect human rights in China? After his presentation, he will discuss these issues in greater depth with William Saunders, JD, director of the IHE’s Program in Human Rights and director of the Center for Human Rights in the School of Arts and Sciences. After the discussion, the floor will be opened for Q&A..

This event is FREE, open to the public, and will be followed by a reception with refreshments.
