Human Rights in China

Description Founded by Chinese students and scholars in March 1989, Human Rights in China (HRIC) is an international, Chinese, nongovernmental organization with a mission to promote international human rights and advance the institutional protection of these rights in the People's Republic of China (China). HRIC's approach is a long-term process of engaging multiple international actors, including the media, governments, corporations, various United Nations bodies, and other multilateral organizations. HRIC's education, research, and advocacy strategies are guided by three key objectives:

Supporting the work of local civil society groups to promote the process of economic, administrative, and legal reforms;

Generating international pressure for social change through monitoring to ensure accountability, transparency, and compliance with the Chinese government's international human rights obligations; and

Strengthening international human rights frameworks and facilitating international cooperation by working with other nongovernmental organizations, the UN, and other multilateral and bilateral organizations, national governments, and donors.
