    Human rights, China and the future of democracies

    Join a panel of experts who will discuss the human rights situation in China and what it means for democracies around the world.

    From the re-education camps in Xinjiang to the brutal repression in Hong Kong and through Tibet, experts are worried about human rights in China. In addition, the expansion of 5G technology has more democratic countries worried about surveillance and digital authoritarianism.

    This event will take place on Concordia’s Sir George Williams Campus. An email will be sent to all registered participants on the morning of the event to confirm its location.
