Religion and Rights in China -- International Symposium
The 2008 Olympic Games brought international attention to China's human rights practices, as well as intensified repression against Tibetan Buddhists, Uyghur Muslims, non-registered churches and Falun Dafa practitioners. At the same time, China is experiencing the greatest religious revival in human history. This symposium will examine issues of religious control and persecution as well as the contributions of religions as civil society organizations building human rights in China. We will approach this by pairing academic and activist presentations in panels on Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and Falun Dafa, and discussion sessions. Dr. Pitman Potter (University of British Columbia Law School) will be the keynote speaker.
Advance Registration required - space limits us to 60 people. To Register email email@example.com. Registration for Symposium and Lunch - $20. Students - $10. Additional $20 for evening dinner.
