Human Rights Policy in the Age of Xi Jinping

Grant Year: 2017


John Kamm will direct the work of the Dui Hua Foundation to examine President Xi Jinping’s efforts to suppress dissent and repress civil society and to assess the implications of these policies for China’s political evolution. He will conduct research on changes in Chinese law and regulations as well as the cases of individual political detainees; conduct quarterly trips to China to discuss these cases with representatives of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Justice; and engage in policy outreach to governments and multilateral organizations involved in human rights advocacy vis-à-vis China. The project’s findings will appear in a series of papers, reports, and other publications.
