Human Rights in China After the Olympics
New Book Offers Insights on the Human Rights Situation in China
Human Rights Without Frontiers (HRWF)


Brussels, Belgium–Human Rights Without Frontiers (HRWF) is pleased to announce the publication of its book Human Rights in China After the Olympics, a valuable deskbook on the current human rights situation in China.

The book presents a comprehensive and insightful look at current conditions in China, covering topics such as Tibet, the death penalty, the one-child policy, the North Korean refugees and environmental issues. It is mainly composed of papers presented by a dozen NGOs at the December 2, 2009 conference “Human Rights in China after the Olympics and before the UN Universal Periodic Review,” organized in the European Parliament in Brussels. The event brought human rights experts, international lawyers, and Members of the European Parliament together to assess a number of human rights issues China still faces after the 2008 Olympic Games. Further contributions to the book deal with other topics such as China’s policy in Africa and China’s Universal Periodic Review at the U.N.

As István Szent-Iványi, MEP from Hungary, writes in the Foreword to the book: “A new stocktaking is necessary unfortunately not because of the number of positive developments in this area, but… because of several aspects of human rights in China where further deterioration can be observed.” Human Rights in China After the Olympics takes a strong step forward in cataloging those aspects and providing insights for the way forward in China.

Human Rights in China After the Olympics is available worldwide on for $19.95. Copies of the book may be purchased by clicking on the link below:
