VOA现场:中国领导层交替之年的人权


中国国家主席胡锦涛

中国国家主席胡锦涛

今年是中国领导层换届之年,中国主席胡锦涛和总理温家宝将把世界第二大经济体的领导权交给习近平和李克强。胡温时代的人权遗产是什么?他们的接班人会对那些持不同政见者采取同样的强硬路线吗?民权活动人士会继续受到骚扰,拘留和被当局采用法外手段强制失踪吗?民权意识的增长,越来越多的劳工动荡,初生的中产阶级对政府责任和透明度的要求,这些加起来,是否会改变中国一党专政的政府对待威胁的做法?

著名人权团体“人权观察”举办座谈会,讨论这些问题及其对美国和欧盟的影响。

这次座谈会在美国时间星期五中午10点到11点30分举行,也就是中国时间星期五夜晚11点到凌晨12点30分。

Human Rights in the Year of China’s Leadership Transition

Featuring:

Nicholas Bequelin
Senior Asia Researcher, Human Rights Watch

Phelim Kine
Senior Asia Researcher, Human Rights Watch

2012 is the year of leadership transition in China; China’s President Hu Jintao and Premier Wen Jiabao will “exit stage left” in the next 12 months. They will turn over the reins ofpower of the world’s second largest economy to their presumptive successors Xi Jinping andLi Keqiang. What will be the human rights legacy of the Hu/Wen era? Will their successorstake the same hard line against perceived dissent? Will civil society activists continue to betargeted for harassment, detention, and extralegal enforced disappearance? Or will thecombination of rising popular rights consciousness, growing labor unrest, and greaterdemands by China’s nascent middle class for transparency and accountability promptchanges in how the Chinese government responds to perceived threats to the CommunistParty’s monopoly on power? Drawing on Human Rights Watch’s wide body of work onhuman rights in China, Dr. Nicholas Bequelin and Phelim Kine will discuss these and relatedissues and their implications for China’s key bilateral partners, including the US and the EU.
