Human rights in China 2

Human rights in China: Women, minorities, technology

Speakers Yaqiu Wang, Mei Fong, Daria Impiombato, Albert Zhang and Justin Bassi

The Australian Strategic Policy Institute and Human Rights Watch are delighted to invite you to a joint event on human rights in China with a focus on women, minorities and technology. 

Human Rights Watch’s senior China researcher, Yaqiu Wang, will provide an address on Beijing’s efforts to undermine human rights abroad, including through the Belt and Road Initiative and its vast propaganda, censorship and surveillance apparatus.

Following her presentation, Yaqiu will join Human Rights Watch’s Chief Communications Officer, Mei Fong, and ASPI's Daria Impiombato and Albert Zhang on an expert panel to discuss China’s one-child policy and population demographics, including effects on society, gender imbalance, and economy. The panel will also discuss China’s expanding surveillance globally as well as its role in perpetuating disinformation and misinformation.

Please note this is a hybrid event with the opportunity to attend in person or online. For guests attending in person, the event will be followed by a reception.
