  Human Rights Agreement in China

Social Justice Posted by <Xnoubis> on Wednesday November 22, @11:46AM
from the slight-of-han dept.

The Chinese government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United Nations regarding technical cooperation in the field of human rights, including the training of lawyers and policemen. Mary Robinson, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, praised this event as “a very positive step,” but acknowledged that China still has a "very significant way to go" in meeting international human rights standards.

The organization Human Rights in China criticized the agreement as being overly “watered-down,” expressing concerns that China could use it as a way to “muzzle UN monitoring procedures and public criticism of its human rights situation.” But it does signal the possibility (however remote) of further humanitarian progress in China.
