Concept Note for Geneva Forum 2021

China is playing an increasingly aggressive role in challenging universally accepted principles of human rights and the human rights protection and assessment mechanism of the United Nations. In order to preserve the international human rights system and to bring forth the ground realities in China, to counter China’s propaganda, a forum focusing on human rights in China has become more crucial than ever.

The Geneva Forum on Human Rights provides a unique platform for human rights experts, practitioners, academics, activists, governments, diplomats, think tanks, civil society groups and affected groups to monitor and evaluate the human rights situation in regions under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Specifically, the areas of focus include Tibet, Xinjiang, Southern Mongolia, Hong Kong and Macau. By bringing together a diverse group of individuals, organizations and institutions, the Forum shall examine a coordinated multilateral approach to challenge and improve the CCP’s worsening human rights record.g note on 13 November 2020.
