China Rights Forum (CRF) is HRIC's bilingual journal. Since its founding in 1990, CRF has gained a reputation as an important source of information regarding China’s human rights developments. CRF provides space for the voices of Chinese dissidents, scholars, artists, writers, and activists promoting democratic reform, labor rights, freedom of expression, and the rights of religious and ethnic minorities and disadvantaged groups.
As a quarterly journal in print and online through 2011, CRF was distributed to more than 3,500 individuals and institutions, including Chinese students and scholars abroad, international China experts, journalists, human rights-related NGOs, government officials, and experts and delegates to the UN Human Rights Council and other human rights bodies.
In July 2012, HRIC introduced a new CRF online-only edition, offering expanded interactive features and content. We encourage our readers to subscribe to the China Rights Forum online edition in order to receive announcements of new issues and updates on new content and features.

We greatly appreciate the support and feedback we have received over the years from our readers and look forward to your ongoing support and comments!
