Dr Robert Weatherley: Human rights in China: Discourse, diplomacy and defensive nationalism

Speaker: Dr Robert Weatherley

There can be few countries in the world that have faced more intense external scrutiny of their human rights record than the People’s Republic of China. But how has China responded to this scrutiny? This lecture identifies three different responses, two of which are proactive – discourse and diplomacy – and one which is reactive – defensive nationalism.

Dr Robert Weatherley is a lecturer at Cambridge University, King’s College London, Tartu University, and also a commercial lawyer with the Cambridge firm Mills & Reeve.
