China's Human Rights Lawyers: Current Challenges and Prospects
The Congressional-Executive Commission on China presents a roundtable discussion.
At this CECC Roundtable a panel of experts will discuss China's human rights lawyers and their role in advancing the rule of law in China. What is the relationship between these lawyers and the Chinese government and the Communist Party? Why have Chinese authorities recently stripped some prominent rights lawyers of their lawyers' licenses? What explains the increasing harassment of human rights lawyers, what does the future hold for them, and what does their treatment suggest about the development of the rule of law in China?
