Human Rights Diplomacy in the Era of Xi and Trump

Grant Year: 2018


John Kamm will direct an effort to enhance the policy community’s understanding of political developments in China in an era marked by the increasingly repressive rule of President Xi Jinping. He will conduct open-source research to document individual cases of persons imprisoned in China for expressing political or religious views. He will also conduct biannual trips to China to discuss these cases with representatives of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Justice and to engage in policy outreach to elements of the U.S. government, as well as to officials in allied governments and multilateral organizations. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers, reports, and other publications.
