PROMOTING HUMAN RIGHTS IN CHINA:

DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL LEVERS FOR CHANGE

9:00-9:15 a.m.: Welcome and Introduction
Dean Trevor Morrison, Eric M. and Laurie B. Roth Professor of Law, New York University School of Law

As the crackdown on lawyers and defenders that began in July 2015 continues with prolonged incommunicado detention of individuals without trial, family members of those still detained, and of those released after suffering abuses in custody, have not stopped speaking out to demand justice. In these narratives, what we are witnessing is a rising activism among a group determined to hold the authorities accountable for unlawfully suppressing citizens who are exercising rights protected by Chinese and international law. (All text translated by Human Rights in China.)

About the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is the groundbreaking foundational document of the modern human rights regime. In 1948, it set out for the first time a set of fundamental, universal human rights to which all human beings are entitled. Starting as an aspirational treatise, it is now considered the part of the “International Bill of Human Rights” and it has shaped and informed almost every area of international law.

Human Rights in China (HRIC) is pleased to host the Robert L. Bernstein Fellowship in International Human Rights. The fellowship enables an NYU Law School graduate to devote a year to full-time human rights work at HRIC. It was established in honor of Mr. Bernstein, Director and Chair Emeritus of HRIC and Founding Chair and Director Emeritus of Human Rights Watch, who has made lifelong contributions to human rights in China and around the world.

HRIC's internships offer direct, in-depth exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization. Interns are an integral part of the culture and work of our organization and have the opportunity to participate in HRIC's media and presswork, advocacy projects, research, and briefings.

Projects that interns have worked on in the past include news/social media tracking and analysis; research on key laws and social issues; drafting, copyediting, and translating advocacy materials and press/media work; and helping prepare for workshops and other events.
