Human Rights in China – a panel discussion sponsored by UK International Center

On Thursday, April 16th at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of the W.T.Young Library, the UK International Center is sponsoring a panel discussion on human rights in China. Dr. Susan Carvalho, Associate Provost for Internationalization and Interim Associate Provost and Dean of the Graduate School, will moderate the panel. The panelists are:

Douglas Janoff, a senior Canadian Foreign Service officer currently on sabbatical to serve as Diplomat-in-Residence in the Patterson School of Diplomacy
Tom Janoski, Professor of Sociology in the College of Arts & Sciences and Director of the Quantitative Initiative in the Policy and Social Science

Amnesty International has documented many issues regarding China’s human rights violations – freedom of expression, detention without trial, and the death penalty (even for non-violent crimes) – naming China the “leading executioner in the world.”

All faculty teaching UK Core courses in the Global Dynamics content area have been notified so they can invite their students to attend. Please offer your students and colleagues this important opportunity for exploring issues regarding human rights in a global context. You can download a flyer (.pdf file) here.
