The tenth anniversary of the protests and suppression in Tiananmen Square is June 4. The tragic events in Beijing still hang heavily over the U.S.-China relationship. Moreover, the anniversary this year coincides with a steadily worsening atmosphere between the U.S. and China. A panel of experts will look back on China’s human rights record over the past 10 years, and analyze how the issue affects U.S. ties to China. The briefing will cover:

  • Current status of human rights in China
  • Prospects for political dissidents and the rule of law in China
  • The impact of China?s human rights record on relations with the U.S.
  • An assessment of the future course of U.S.-China relations
