"Implications and Dangers for Tibetans and Uyghurs"
Vincent Metten, EU Policy Director, International Campaign for Tibet
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English.
Last year the Chinese government introduced a controversial new law ostensibly aimed at countering terrorism but in reality aimed – say critics – at squelching criticism of the Communist Party and authority rule.
The International Campaign for Tibet is a non-governmental organization that claims 150,000 members worldwide and offices in Washington DC, Berlin, Amsterdam and Brussels. Richard Gere is president of its US board.
The group's mandate is to promote human rights and democratic freedoms for the people of Tibet in which context Vincent Metten, the NGO's European Policy Director, will be speaking about China's new counter-terrorism law.
The International Campaign for Tibet in partnership with the International Federation for Human Rights has written a report on China's new law and Metten will speak at the FCCJ about its implications, the human rights consequences, the security dimension and the international cooperation between China and third countries as Japan.
