Date: Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Location: New York City, New York
Venue: Book Culture (formerly known as Labyrinth Books), 536 West 112th Street New York, NY 10025
Human Rights in China (HRIC) is hosting an event at Book Culture to celebrate the launch of its latest publication, Challenging China: Struggle and Hope in an Era of Change.
Challenging China is a revealing insiders' portrait of
contemporary life inside China, written by activists,
journalists, authors, and former government officials. These
accounts reflect growing activism addressing the complex
human rights challenges facing China—endemic corruption,
ongoing crackdowns, censorship and information control,
and growing social and economic inequalities.
Introductory remarks: Professor Andrew J. Nathan is the Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science at Columbia University.
Discussion: Hu Ping is the chief editor of Beijing Spring (since 1996), and editor for Human Rights in China's (HRIC) online monthly journal, Ren Yu Ren Quan (Humanity and Human Rights). Sharon Hom is the executive director of Human Rights in China (HRIC), and emerita professor of law at CUNY School of Law.
